– 1 pound pork center cut (or tenderloin)
– 1 bottle La Choy Teriyaki Stir Fry & Marinade
– Small jar of minced garlic
– 1 red pepper
– 2 cucumbers
– 1 avocado
– black sesame seeds
– Dulse Flakes (Maine Coast Sea Vegetables)
– olive oil
– red wine vinegar
– 1 lime
– You will also need disposable wooden skewers.
Grilled Teriyaki Pork:
– Cut pork into 2 inch x 2 inch cubes & marinate overnight in 1/4 cup La Choy Teriyaki Stir Fry & Marinade, and 1 teaspoon of minced garlic.
– Place pork cubes on disposable wooden skewers.
– Grill, turning frequently on a medium flame for about 10-12 minutes. (I use wood charcoal, which would be a single layer of charcoal, hot enough to be mostly gray- usually allow 20 minutes for charcoal to be ready for cooking.)
– Remove from grill, allow a minute to cool, & serve.
– Partially skin 2 cucumbers, slice thin, discarding middle portion (seeds), & chop each piece into thin strips, (~3 inch strips).
– Slice 1 red pepper into thin strips, (~ 2 inch strips).
– Cube avocado into 1 inch cubes. (use 1/2 avocado for the salad)
– Place vegetables into a salad bowl, add 2 tablespoons olive oil, 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar, and toss.
– sprinkle a teaspoon of black sesame seeds, and a teaspoon of Dulse Flakes onto vegetables & toss again.
– Squeeze fresh lime over the salad.
– Serve with the Grilled Teriyaki Pork Skewers.
This easy-to-prepare & easy-to-cook meal with an Asian flare is perfect for Summertime barbecues & a great idea for Father’s Day!

I’d just like to add a few notes about some of the ingredients as well. I chose La Choy Teriyaki because it’s the lowest in sugar & sodium out of the many Teriyaki sauces that I looked at. It truly complimented the meat & created mouth-watering morsels that I really enjoyed eating! So delicious! Also, the Dulse Flakes are rich in iodine which has been stripped from much of our foods, & is a vital nutrient for healthy thyroid function. And last but not least, the black sesame seeds provide a great source of calcium and magnesium, and help to lend flavor that completes that Asian fusion taste that I was going for in this meal. I hope that you enjoy this one as much as I did.
Mangiare, Piaccia! Eat, Enjoy!
