Summer is just ending but there's still enough warm weather left to enjoy this refreshing dish!

Prep time: 10 minutes; Cooking time: 7 minutes

Serves 4

1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon ground coriander seed
1/2 teaspoon chilli
Half teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
4 (250g) thick pork chops
Half fresh pineapple, finely diced
3 small red chillies, seeded and finely sliced
Half small red onion, finely diced
1/2 cup coriander leaves, chopped
1/2 cup mint, finely chopped
1 tablespoon caster sugar
Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime


1. Combine cumin, coriander, chilli powder and salt and sprinkle it on the pork cutlets.

2. Brush a hot BBQ plate with olive oil and cook the cutlets, turning once, for 3-4 minutes each side or until cooked. (Time will depend on the thickness of the cutlet.)

3. Remove the meat from the heat and rest, covered with foil for a few minutes before serving.

4. In a medium bowl, combine the pineapple, chillies, coriander, mint and lime zest. In a separate bowl, combine lime juice and sugar and stir until dissolved.

5. Toss the dressing through the salsa.

6. Serve the cutlets with salsa, and steamed rice if you like.
