Asian inspired pork fillet

My usual dish to make with pork fillet is saltimbocca. Last night that didn't really appeal, so I looked for other ways to cook the meat. I was tempted by all the Asian recipes, but slightly limited with the ingredients I had. Then I found a simple marinade with just four ingredients and gave it a try. Obviously the longer you marinade the meat for, the better, but I only left it for an hour or so. The meat was beautifully tender with a delicious Asian inspired flavour. 

Serves 4
500-600g piece of pork fillet

for the marinade;
½ cup of honey
2 cloves or garlic, crushed
4 tbsp of teriyaki sauce or soy sauce
juice of a lemon

Mix together the ingredients for the marinade and lay in the pork fillet, (I cut mine in half). Refrigerate for up to 3 hours, turning occasionally. When you are ready to cook, heat the oven to 200ÂșC. Heat some oil in a pan and brown the sides of the fillet. Put in a roasting dish and roast for 20 minutes until the juices run clear. Leave to rest covered in foil for about 10 minutes. Heat the marinade in a pan with the juices that have come from the resting meat. Slice the meat into thin slices, serve with rice, steamed green vegetables and the sauce drizzled over.
