Paleo Citrus-Marinated Pork Recipe

paleo pork recipe, citrus prok, citrus-marinated pork When some people think of pork they think heavy BBQ or fatty cuts, but pork can be light and healthy; its so versatile. This citrus-based pork marinade is just that: light and healthy and perfect for summer.

I normally serve this over salad (it’s pictured with my Kale and Avocado salad recipe) or with some fresh vegetables.

I have always found that, with pork specifically, marinating it overnight makes a significant difference in the flavor of the meat, but if you are crunched for time, try to keep it marinating for at least four hours. I cooked these chops on the grill, but they can be baked or pan fried, as well. Enjoy!
