Ingredients

Warm Pineapple Salsa:
Pork Chops:

Directions

For the salsa: Heat the oil in a medium saute pan over medium heat. Saute the pineapple, Fresno chile and red onion until tender and the juices have been released, 5 to 7 minutes. Add the guava jelly, soy sauce, ginger and garlic; stir together and cook for 1 minute. Add a drizzle of sriracha if desired. Stir in the cilantro and scallions.

For the pork chops: Set up a dredging station with three separate bowls: one with the flour, another with the beaten eggs and soy sauce, and the last with the breadcrumbs, coconut flakes, five-spice powder, garlic powder and some salt and pepper.

Dip the pork chops in the flour, then the egg and then in the breadcrumb mixture.

Heat 1 inch of oil in a large saute pan over medium-high heat. Shallow fry the dredged pork chops until golden brown, then flip and cook to an internal temperature of 145 degrees F. Remove the pork chops from the pan and set aside to rest for 5 minutes.

Serve the pork chops with salsa on top and macadamia nuts as garnish.
