BBQ Lamb Chops with Pesto and Sweet Potato Chips
Homemade chips and chops - you can’t get much better than that for an Aussie BBQ.
350g pork fillet
2 tsp olive oil
1 Tbs peri peri spice mix
1/4 small red onion
Small handful freshly chopped coriander
1/2 long red chilli
2 tsp apple cider vinegar
1/4 tsp sea salt or to taste
Pinch freshly ground black pepper
1 small avocado
8 mini tortillas
Preheat oven to 180 C.
Drizzle the pork with olive oil and sprinkle with peri peri spice mix, rubbing it well into the meat. You can cut the fillet in half to allow it to fit into the pan.
Heat a large frying pan over medium to high heat and sear the pork for 5-6 minutes on each side, turning regularly. When the meat is cooked, allow to rest wrapped in aluminium foil for 5 minutes.
Peel, core and finely dice the pineapple. Peel and finely slice the onion. Cut the chilli in half, remove seeds and finely dice the flesh. Finely chop the coriander. Combine the pineapple, onion, chilli and coriander in a bowl and season with apple cider vinegar, salt and pepper.
Scoop avocado flesh into a small bowl and drizzle with juice from half a lime. Cut remaining lime into wedges and reserve for serving. Heat tortillas wrapped in aluminium foil in the oven for 10 minutes.
Once the pork has rested, slice into 5mm-thin slices.
To serve, top each tortilla with a spoonful of avocado, 4-5 slices of pork and a generous topping of pineapple salsa. Serve lime wedges on the side.
