For the marinated pork:

  •  4 pork loin medallions or pork loin steaks, fat removed
  •  3 tablespoons sweet chilli sauce
  •  Grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  •  2 garlic cloves, peeled and grated
  •  1 tablespoon ground coriander

  • 100g bag mixed salad leaves

  2. Heat a pan and fry the medallions with the marinade and 100ml of water for 10 minutes covered, turning halfway or until the juices run clear.
