This rosemary and fennel pork recipe is a delicious summer dish that works perfectly on the barbecue.
- 5.1g (0.3g saturated)
- 0.4g (trace sugar)
- Trace salt
- 1 tsp fennel seeds
- 4 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
- Leaves of 4 fresh rosemary sprigs
- 1 tsp ground allspice
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- 500g pork loin fillet
- Lightly crush the fennel in a pestle and mortar. Add the garlic, rosemary, allspice, some seasoning and pound to a coarse paste.
- Rub the oil onto the pork, then massage in the paste. Cover and chill in the fridge until ready to cook.
- Remove from the fridge 1 hour before barbecuing. Barbecue over medium coals for 45 minutes, until crusty and cooked through. Rest for 5 minutes before carving.
As loin of pork is a naturally lean cut, it’s important not to overcook it, or it will dry out.
