Recipe: Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Scallion Skewers (GF)

Have I got an easy weeknight dinner for you!

Grilled pork tenderloin is fabulous and I make it often in the summer, but I’ve always grilled the tenderloin whole; I never thought to slice it and skewer it until now. It cooked in no time (although I did marinate it for a bit) and turned out great! The scallions were a lovely flavor complement and also a nice way to separate the pork slices.

I served it with a cucumber and feta cheese salad, and the whole meal felt like the perfect way to bid summer adieu!

I hope that you enjoy these last weeks of summertime and look forward, with excitement, to the pleasures of autumn!



Grilled Pork Tenderloin and Scallion Skewers (GF)


  • 1 lemon
  • 2 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp. Extra virgin olive oil
  • ½ tsp. Salt
  • ½ tsp. Ground black pepper
  • 1 1 pound pork tenderloin
  • 5 scallions cut into 1-2 inch pieces


  1. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat.
  2. Zest the lemon into a medium bowl and squeeze in the juice (it should yield approximately 3 Tbsp of juice). Add the garlic, oil, salt and pepper. Mix to combine.
  3. Thinly slice the pork tenderloin on a diagonal and add the pork and the scallions to the marinade. Allow to marinate for 15-30 minutes.
  4. Thread the pork and scallions onto skewers and grill until just cooked through, approximately 2-3 minutes per side.

Serves 4.
