  • 2 pork tenderloins I used 2 pork tenderloins over a pound each


  • Juice of 1 lime
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • 1/3 cup soy sauce or tamari
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar

Honey Garlic Paste:

  • 1/3 cup honey
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 6 cloves garlic minced
  • Zest of 1 lime
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper

Green Sauce:

  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1/3 cup parsley finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup green onions finely chopped
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper


  • In a medium bowl combine all the marinade ingredients, pierce the pork with a fork all over the surface and add it to the bowl. Cover and marinate for 2-3 hours or 24 hours.
  • In another medium bowl combine all the Paste ingredients, when ready to grill the pork. Stir until smooth.
  • Remove pork tenderloin from marinade, pat dry and spread the paste generously over it.
  • Heat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat. Grill pork for about 20 minutes, turning occasionally with tongs until charred and a thermometer inserted into the thickest part reads 145 degrees F. For larger tenderloins, cook longer until desired internal temperature is reached.

Green Sauce:

  • In a medium bowl, stir together all ingredients and season with salt and pepper.
  • Let the pork rest 10 minutes, then slice and serve with the sauce.
