  • 1
    Mix all Fruit ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • 2
    Mix all Spice Rub ingredients. Place pork in heavy-duty resealable food-storage plastic bag. Sprinkle with Spice Rub. Turn bag several times to coat pork. Seal bag; refrigerate 15 minutes.
  • 3
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove pork from bag. Cover and grill pork 4 to 6 inches from medium heat 15 to 20 minutes, turning frequently, until pork has slight blush of pink in center and meat thermometer inserted in center reads 160°F. Serve with fruit mixture.

Expert Tips

  • You'll find a variety of Caribbean spice mixes in the spice section of the supermarket to use instead of making the Spice Rub.
  • Use precut mixed fruit found in the produce or deli section of your supermarket.
  • Serve grilled corn on the cob with cilantro butter with this Caribbean island dinner. Sherbet with coconut is a pleasing finale.
