Source: Everyday Food, March 2013


  • 5 ears corn (4 cups kernels)
  • 1 small jalapeno, seeded if desired, minced
  • 1 scallion, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro
  • 1 avocado, sliced
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided, plus more for grill
  • 2 limes
  • Coarse salt and pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 pork tenderloins (1 pound each), each cut into six 1-inch-thick medallions


  1. Boil corn 5 minutes in a pot of salted water. Drain and rinse under cold water to cool. With a sharp knife, cut kernels from cobs. Transfer to a bowl and toss with jalapeno, scallion, cilantro, avocado, 2 tablespoons oil, and juice of 1 lime. Season with salt.

  2. Combine chili powder, 2 teaspoons salt, 1/2 teaspoon pepper, and remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Place plastic wrap over pork medallions and press each to flatten to about 1/2 inch thick. Brush both sides with chili mixture.

  3. Heat a grill or grill pan to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Grill pork 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium. Remove from grill and squeeze juice of remaining lime on top. Serve with corn salad.

    This was an easy and delicious recipe. The only changes I would make would be to put less salt and more chili on the pork. To keep it simple I used frozen ears of corn which were fine but would have preferred fresh. Will definitely make this again.

    Made this with chicken breasts rather than pork (as I didn't have pork). Turned out excellent. Highly recommended.
