# 91 Fridays recipes: Grilled pork escalopes

Grilled or fried these pork escalopes are delicious although they're healthier grilled on a hot dry grilling pan or on a barbecue.

Grilled Pork Escalopes

Pork escalopes
2 cloves of garlic
1 bay leaf
Pinch of mild chilli powder or paprika (use hot chilli powder or some sort of piri-piri sauce if you like spicy food)
Pinch of salt
1 cup milk
1 1/2 tablespoon Port wine
Few drops of lemon and orange juice (optional)

In a plastic container with lid make a marinade by mixing all the ingredients listed above. Add the pork escalopes and make sure the marinade is covering them and keep in the fridge until cooking time. The meat should be prepared at least a couple of hours before cooking but the longer it stays in the marinade the better.

Drain the pork escalopes and cook them on a hot grilling pan, on a barbecue or fry them in a little vegetable oil and butter.

This marinade goes really well with pork, turkey or chicken meat whether grilled, barbecued or fried.

Serve with white rice or chips and a salad or on a slice of bread.

Enjoy :-)
