  • 1 ripe, freestone peach
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  • 1 tablespoon honey (more if the peaches are not really sweet)
  • 1/2 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime

Honey Glazed Pork Tenderloin:

  • 1 pork tenderloin (about 1 pound)
  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse ground sea salt, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons light, local honey
  • 2 shallots, peeled and thinly sliced

Instructions:

For the salsa:

  1. Cut the peach in half. Remove the pit and dice the fruit. Place in a small bowl. Add the cilantro, onion, honey, oil, lime zest and juice, salt and pepper. Stir gently and allow to sit, covered.

For the pork:

  1. Remove excess fat and the silver skin from the tenderloin. Put the tenderloin in a shallow bowl large enough to accommodate it. Drizzle with 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and sprinkle with the garlic, salt, and pepper. Drizzle with the honey. Let sit for 30 minutes.
  2. Prepare a grill to medium-high heat. Put the marinated pork on the grill and cook, about 5 minutes. Shift the pork 90 degrees and grill for 5 more minutes. Flip it over and repeat. Cook until the internal temperature is 145 degrees F. Remove from the grill and let sit for 5 minutes.
  3. Place the remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil in a saute pan. Add the shallots when the oil starts to shimmer. Saute until crispy, and then drain on a paper towel. Sprinkle with salt.
  4. .Slice the pork and serve with the shallots and salsa.
