Sweet & Fiery Pork Tenderloin with Mango Salsa

I discovered this recipe on my new favorite blog to pin from...! It has sweet chili sauce & Sriracha in the glaze ( how can it NOT be delish with those 2 ingredients ???!!! I really enjoyed the mango salsa as well.. Just the perfect amount of heat from the jalapeƱo in it. Here is the link to the original recipe:

Pork Tenderloin
• 1 tsp garlic salt
• 1/2 tsp ground ginger
• 1 lb pork tenderloin
• 1 Tbsp honey
• 1/4 cup red sweet chili sauce
• 1/2 tsp Sriracha

Pre heat oven to 375. Combine garlic salt and ground ginger in a small bowl then rub on the pork tenderloin. Place the pork on a rack on a foil lined cookie sheet (easy clean up!) cook for about 40-45 mins till cooked all the way thru. When there is about 15 mins left of cooking time for the pork, combine the sweet chili sauce, honey and sriracha then brush over pork in the last 10 minutes of cooking. Slice the pork and serve with pan juices and mango salsa on the side.

Mango Salsa
• 1 large mango, peeled,seeded and coarsely chopped
• 1-2 Tbsp chopped fresh cilantro
• 1 small garlic clove, minced
• 1 Tbsp minced jalepeno, seeds removed and finely diced
• 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Combine all ingredients for salsa in a small bowl, then serve with pork tenderloin.
