Grilled Pork Chops with Citrus Quinoa Salad

Give your BBQ pork chops a lift with this fresh summer favourite. A quick soy-based marinade creates a clean, balanced flavour.

Ingredients

  • 4 pork chops, thick cut on the bone
  • 100ml Kikkoman Roasted Garlic & Soy Marinade & Stir Fry Sauce
  • 2 tbsp sake

Salad:

  • 1 1/2 cups quinoa, cooked
  • 1 orange, peeled and segmented
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup fresh coriander, roughly chopped
  • 2 tbsp fresh mint, roughly chopped
  • 1 large spring onion, sliced

Dressing:

  • 1 tbsp Kikkoman Naturally Brewed Soy Sauce
  • Juice and zest of 1 lime
  • 2 tbsp peanut or vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp raw sugar
  • Pepper to taste

Method

Place pork chops in a large zip lock bag. Add the sauce and sake. Seal and leave to marinade in refrigerator for at least 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, prepare the salad by placing the ingredients into a large bowl and toss gently to mix well. To make the dressing, place all of the ingredients into a small bowl and whisk to combine. Set aside until ready to serve.

Heat a grill plate on medium-low heat. Remove the chops from the bag and discard the excess marinade. Place chops on grill and cook on each side for 6-7 minutes or until cooked through.

To serve, spoon salad into a serving bowl and drizzle with the dressing. Place the chops on a separate platter and sprinkle with fresh greens to garnish.
