This recipe originally appeared in Fitness First blog as part of my monthly column and you can find the full method on their site here.

Serves 4


450g pork (roughly 2 fillets)
1 tb olive oil
¼ cup sesame seeds
1 tb honey
2 tb hoisin sauce
350g watercress, trimmed (or spinach leaves)
1/3 cup Thai basil or coriander, coarsely chopped
1 small green apple, thinly sliced
½ small red onion, thinly sliced
12 wholemeal mini tortilla wraps
Plain Greek Yoghurt for topping (optional)
Coriander and lime for serving
Sesame Dressing

2 tb fresh lemon, juiced
2 tb salt-reduced soy sauce or tamari
2 cm fresh ginger, grated
1 fresh small red chili, deseeded, chopped finely (optional)


Preheat oven to 180°C.
In a medium-sized bowl add the hoisin sauce and honey and whisk to combine. Place the pork in the marinade mix and turn to coat the pork. Chill for about 15 minutes to marinate. Once chilled, remove from fridge and allow to return to room temperature before cooking (roughly 5 minutes).
