Smoked Paprika Pork Fillet

Looking for varieties of meats to cook is always a challenge when we’re not sure of the cuts or quality and prepackaged in Spain is aimed at large families.  We found some very nice pork fillet and this is a very simple but tasty way of cooking it on the Cobb. The added bonus was that the campsite at Laredo in Spain has several lime trees with limes ready for picking! This recipe makes enough for 2 hungry people.

In a bowl mix together I heaped tsp paprika, 2 crushed garlic cloves, 2tbsp olive oil, zest and juice of one lime and a few grinds of black pepper.  Pork fillet about 400g, trimmed of all sinew and cut into 2 pieces. Make diagonal slits in each piece, do not cut through completely, marinade in the paprika mix for hours.

Heat the Cobb, use the frypan or plate, sear the pork on all sides, cover with lid and cook to taste, rest the pork a few minutes then slice and serve.
