In tonight’s recipe, we’re making the most out of our exceptional roasted garlic and red pepper spice blend by using it two ways. First, we’re using it to season colourful bell peppers that we grill and then combine with green olives, tomatoes and fresh basil in a bright and refreshing salsa. Then, we’re using a big pinch of it to season tender pork chops.
A generous portion of pearl couscous, with its fluffy texture and delicate flavour, completes this stylish and delicious dish!

Cook the pork chops
Heat a drizzle of oil in a large grill pan on medium-high. Pat the pork chops dry with paper towel; season with the remaining spice blend and S&P. Add the pork* to the pan and grill, 3 to 5 minutes per side, until cooked through. Set aside to rest for at least 5 minutes before serving.

Grill the bell peppers
While the pork chops cook, in a medium pan, heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Add the peppers to the pan; cook 2 to 4 minutes per side, until browned and tender. Transfer to a cutting board. Once cool enough to handle, small dice.
