Pork Tenderloin: Tip: Season the meat the night before for a quick start for dinner.

2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon jalapeno* or red pepper flakes
Grated peel of 1 orange
Grated peel of 1 lemon
3/4 pound pork tenderloin

Combine oil, salt, jalapeno flakes, and orange and lemon peels in small bowl. Spread mixture over pork; wrap and marinate in the refrigerator 1 hour. (Can be made ahead. Refrigerate overnight.)

Heat and oil grill or grill pan. Grill pork 20 minutes, turning several times, until meat thermometer inserted in the thickest part of the tenderloin registers 155 degrees. Transfer pork to a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes.
