Ingredients

Chilli powder

2 tsp

Ground cumin

1 tsp

Ground coriander

½ tsp

Garlic

2 clove(s), crushed

Lean pork fillet

428 g, (buy 450g), fat trimmed

Olive oil

1 tbs

Freshly squeezed orange juice

1½ tbs

Lime juice

1½ tbs

Lemon juice

3 tsp

Green shallot(s)

1 individual, thinly sliced

Caster sugar

1 tsp

Watercress

150 g, sprigs

Cherry tomatoes

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 200°C. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Combine chilli, cumin, coriander and half the garlic in a small bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Rub spice mixture all over pork.
  3. Heat 1 teaspoon oil in a large non-stick frying pan over medium–high heat. Cook pork, turning occasionally, for 8 minutes or until browned. Transfer pork to prepared tray. Bake for 15–20 minutes or until cooked through. Transfer to a plate. Cover pork with foil and rest for 5 minutes before slicing thickly.
  4. Meanwhile, to make dressing, whisk orange, lime and lemon juices, shallot, sugar and remaining garlic and oil in a small bowl.
  5. Arrange watercress and tomatoes on a serving platter. Top with pork and drizzle with dressing.

Notes

COOK'S TIP: The dressing can be made up to 1 day ahead. Keep it covered in the fridge and whisk well before drizzling over pork and salad to serve.
