Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Aquavit Seasonings (Snapse Krydret Svine Morbrad)
The seasonings traditionally used to make aquavit--a Northern European distilled spirit--vary with every recipe, but they usually include pork-friendly seasonings like caraway, cumin and fennel--so why not combine the two? This easy, pretty dish is great hot off the grill or made ahead and chilled.
Make Ahead Tip: Prepare the spice rub (Step 1) up to 5 days ahead; store in an airtight container. Cover and refrigerate rolled tender loins for up to 6 hours. If serving cold, grill or broil the pork, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 days.
Equipment: Kitchen string
Tip: To oil the grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.) When grilling delicate foods like tofu and fish, it is helpful to spray the food with cooking spray.
