  • Seared Pork Tenderloin with Maple and Pear

    Seared Pork Tenderloin with Maple and Pear

    This was an excellent dinner that I’ll surely be making again. The prep is easy and everything can be cooked in one large pan (provided that pan can go in the oven – otherwise you will need to transfer to a baking dish). The ingredients pair together nicely and the meat is tender enough even for a baby. My in-laws were here for dinner and while they are not picky, I do like to fancy-it-up.

First let me explain why I call it authentic Mexican ceviche. So what is it and how do I make it? Well, for starters there are several different types of ceviche. It can be made from Conch, a large shellfish found all over the Caribbean, shrimp, or a white meat fish such as snapper, trout, etc. We used Spanish Mackerel a lot as well when I was in Cancun. The recipe is the same regardless of the meat you choose so let me begin. For a refreshing snack that will feed six to eight people you will want about a pound of meat filleted and deboned.
