Pork Chops with Mango Salsa and Spinach

The mango and chilli in the salsa compliment the natural flavour of the pork.

Serves 4
Cooking time: 30 minutes
To Cook

Combine all the marinade ingredients. Place the chops in a dish and pour over the marinade. If you have time allow the chops to marinate for 15-20 minutes.

Meanwhile to make the salsa combine all the ingredients in a bowl, season and taste.

Preheat the grill or barbecue. Cook the pork chops for three to four minutes on each side, depending on thickness.

While the chops are cooking heat a little oil in a wok or large frying pan. Add the garlic and red pepper and stir-fry for a minute. Then add in the spinach and stir-fry until it begins to wilt.

Serve the chops with the mango salsa, stir-fried spinach and baked potatoes.
