Gremolata Pork with Lemon Spinach

Serves 4

Ingredients

  • 1 x 500g pork fillet 
  • 1 tbsp basil oil
  • 50g (2oz) ciabatta bread, torn into pieces
  • 4 tbsp flat leaf parsley, coarsely chopped
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp olive oil freshly ground black pepper

For the lemon spinach

  • 250g (9oz) young spinach, washed, dried and finely sliced
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil, plus extra for serving
  • Freshly squeezed juice of ½ lemon

Method

1. Trim any excess fat from the pork fillet. 

2. Cut the fillet into 4 portions. Put each fillet between 2 pieces of clingfilm and, using a rolling pin, beat to ½ cm thickness.

3. Remove and discard the clingfilm and put the pork in a bowl. Add the basil oil and sprinkle with black pepper. Turn to coat, cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.

4. To make the breadcrumbs, put the ciabatta pieces into a food processor and pulse to coarse crumbs. Put the breadcrumbs, parsley and lemon zest into a bowl and mix. Add black pepper to taste. Transfer to a plate and coat the pork with the crumb mixture, pressing gently until coated on both sides.

5. Heat the oil in a large frying pan, add the pork and cook for about 2-3 minutes on each side or until the breadcrumbs are golden and the pork is cooked through.

6. Meanwhile, put the spinach in a large bowl, add the olive oil and lemon juice and toss to coat.

7. Put a mound of spinach on each plate and top with the pork. 8. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with freshly ground black pepper and serve.

Optional: Garnish with some radishes and basil for a little extra flavour.
