Sweet and Spicy Pork Tenderloin with Mango Salsa

I have no experience with cooking pork tenderloin, but when I saw this recipe on it immediately went on the menu for that week!

This is an incredibly easy recipe, and the pork tenderloin came out super juicy and flavourful. When topped with the mango salsa you will find yourself wolfing the meal down! 

Mmmm my mouth is watering, I think I will need to make this again soon.

I served this with some brown coconut rice and it was a tasty quick meal. Perfect for those busy weeknights.  This recipe makes about 4 servings when served with rice or bread on the side. Original recipe is from
