The ginger lime marinade is sweetened with honey and balanced with soy sauce to create the perfect blend of sweet, salty and spicy for a pork tenderloin. This marinade is equally tasty with chicken tenders. They can easily be grilled at home and stowed in your cooler or refrigerator for easy snacking all day long--nutritious and delicious!
1/2 cup - Roughly chopped fresh ginger root, peeled
2 each - Large garlic cloves, peeled
1/4 cup - Fresh-squeezed lime juice
1/2 cup - Low sodium soy sauce
1/2 cup - Honey
1/4 cup - Sesame seeds, toasted
2 to 2-1/2 pounds - Pork tenderloin
Look for toasted sesame seeds in the Oriental food section of your grocery store, or "toast" over low heat in a heavy skillet on the stove. Stir often and watch carefully.
Puree all ingredients except pork and sesame seeds in blender. Strain the marinade to remove any fibrous pieces of ginger, pressing firmly to extract all the juice. Stir sesame seeds into marinade. Place pork in non-metallic pan and cover with marinade. (Do this in the morning before you go boating or the night before. Keep refrigerated.)
Grill the pork tenderloin over medium heat until internal temperature registers 160° F (If you wish to baste while grilling, boil leftover marinade
before basting meat). Cover with foil and let rest approximately 10 minutes to allow the juices to redistribute before slicing.
