A spectacular entree for summer entertaining, pork tenderloin is brushed with an aromatic honey glaze and served with grilled scallions and apricots. This recipe comes from Martha Stewart's Grilling: 125+ Recipes for Gatherings Large and Small.


  • 1 teaspoon coriander seeds

  • ½ teaspoon black peppercorns

  • 2 inches peeled fresh ginger, thinly sliced

  • ¾ cup honey

  • 2 tablespoons apple-cider vinegar

  • Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper

  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 ¼ pounds)

  • Extra-virgin olive oil, for brushing and grill

  • 8 scallions

  • 6 medium-ripe apricots (about 1 pound), halved and pitted


  1. Using a mortar and pestle, coarsely crush coriander seeds and peppercorns. Place in a small dry saucepan and toast over medium heat, shaking pan occasionally, until fragrant and lightly browned, 1 to 2 minutes. Add ginger, honey, vinegar, and 1/4 teaspoon salt; cook until bubbling rapidly, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and let stand 15 minutes, then strain through a fine-mesh sieve into a small bowl (discard solids).

  2. Heat grill to high, with an indirect-heat zone. Season pork with 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper; brush with oil. Lightly brush grates with oil. Grill pork until browned, about 3 minutes per side. Move to indirect heat and cook, covered, until a thermometer inserted into thickest part registers 138 degrees to 145 degrees for medium, 10 to 12 minutes more. Remove from grill and spoon 2 to 3 tablespoons glaze on top. Let stand 10 minutes.

  3. Meanwhile, season scallions with salt and brush with oil; grill until lightly charred and tender, about 3 minutes. Generously brush apricots with oil; grill, cut-sides down, until marks appear and fruit can be turned without sticking, about 3 minutes. Turn and cook until flesh is tender when pressed, about 2 minutes more. Slice pork and arrange on platter with scallions and apricots. Drizzle remaining glaze over apricots, scallions, and pork.
