Celiac.com 06/24/2014 - I love pickling and marinating things. Lately, I’ve been pickling vegetables like cucumbers, turnips, and marinating everything from fish and chicken to mushrooms and pork.

I’ve also been looking for a recipe that will deliver a special, romantic dinner without too much time or effort. This recipe offers a delicious summertime twist to the regular pork chop.

  • 2 thick bone-in pork chops (8 ounces each)
  • 1 cup fresh seedless raspberry pureé
  • ½ cup honey
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon dry white wine
  • ½ teaspoon kosher salt
  • ½ teaspoon fresh minced ginger
  • Generous dash of ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Use a strainer and a whisk over a bowl to de-seed fresh raspberries for enough raspberry pureé to make 1 cup.

Whisk raspberry pureé, lemon juice, salt, ginger, and pepper together in a bowl; add pork chops and turn to coat.

Cover the bowl with plastic wrap and marinate in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, but ideally overnight.

Remove pork from the marinade and shake to remove any extra liquid. Toss out the remaining marinade.

Grill at 425 Fahrenheit, 3-5 minutes on each side until done. Serve with rice and vegetables for a lean, healthy, delicious meal.
