Junior diners will enjoy this sweet and juicy combination as much as the grown-ups. This recipe forms part of the February 11 meal planner, created in partnership with New World.“Now’s the time to celebrate summer fruit” says New World Fresh Expert Brigit Corson, “go further than desserts and get creative with in-season nectarines, peaches, watermelon and blueberries by adding them to mains and sides for a sweet and savoury taste.”
- Rub the pork with garlic, lemon zest, rosemary, olive oil, salt and a good grind of black pepper. Cover and leave for 10-20 minutes.
- Grill the pork chops on the barbecue or pan-fry them for 3-5 minutes each side until cooked.
- Melt the butter in a hot frying pan and fry the nectarines until soft but not falling apart. Add the lemon juice and honey and stir gently to coat the nectarines.
- Serve the pork with the nectarines and their sauce. Steam some broccolini to accompany.
