Pork fillet is a particularly lean cut of meat, making it a healthy option. However, you could use pork chops instead. Serve it with a parsley and almond pesto on boiled or baked baby potatoes or green salad.

Ingredients Nutrition

Directions

  1. Trim off any gristle from the pork fillets, cut them in half crossways and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tablespoon of the oil in a frying pan and fry the meat for 2 to 3 minutes until browned on all sides. Transfer to a roasting dish and cook in a preheated oven, 375 degrees F, for 15 minutes, until cooked through. Remove from the oven, wrap in foil and leave to rest for 5 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, dry-fry the almonds in a clean frying pan, stirring until browned; allow to cool slightly. Place in a food processor with the garlic, parsley, remaining oil and salt and pepper. Blend to form a fairly smooth paste. Stir in the Parmesan and adjust the seasoning if necessary.
  3. Slice the pork, arrange it on plates with any pan juices and serve it with boiled new potatoes and salad drizzled with spoonfuls of the pesto.
