Grilled Spice Rubbed Pork Loin, Zucchini & Pineapple



As the weather was still on the warm side, I decided to stick to the BBQ for our dinner! Tonight we grilled everything... even the pineapple slices!
Delicious with minimal dishes! :-)

Recipe:
Pork loin
1 tsp olive oil
Rub:
2 tsp. coconut crystals (this added a little sweetness, but it's not necessary for the rub)
2 tsp. paprika
2 tsp. garlic powder
2 tsp. oregano
1 tsp. black pepper
1/2 tsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. cumin
1/2 tsp. coriander
Pinch sea salt (optional)

Zucchini, halved lengthwise
Sliced pineapple rings

Trim pork loin of visible fat. Coat loin with olive oil. Combine spiced ingredients and rub over the pork loin. Let it sit that way for about 15 minutes. Slice your zucchini and pineapple slices. The pineapple slices I left bare. The zucchini slices, I coated with a tad of olive oil and sprinkled with a little pepper and garlic powder. Heat grill to medium. Put pork loin on the grill, off to the side... not over direct heat. Cook for about 20-30 minutes (until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees). Place zucchini and pineapple on the grill (also in indirect heat) for about 8-10 minutes. Hope you enjoy!
