    Sackville's Note:

    A simple dish that's packed with flavour. It's easy to adjust the heat by taking out all the chilli seeds or leaving them in.

      Excellent flavor! I seared the chops, then transferred them to a baking dish, put the salsa on top of them and roasted for 10 minutes as directed. I didn't use any olive oil in the salsa. I didn't have any chilies, so I pureed some jalapeno pepper, and added lemon zest to the salsa. Served this over angel hair pasta. Everyone loved the fresh, light and utterly delicious taste of this dish. Great way to use up summer tomatoes. We thought this was fantastic!

      Great tasting recipe - I took a short cut -after browning my chop, squeezing lemon juice on it I put the salsa over it added a half lemon put a tight lid on the pan and simmered it for 15 minutes-cooked to perfection. Thanks Sacville girl for another keeper
