Fillet of Local Pork with Smoke ham and kale, as seen on TV

‘It cannot get much simpler than this; fresh local pork fillet wrapped in smoked ham and kale.  It makes a change from stuffing fillet and you can enjoy the flavor of the pork as it is. It is not only delicious but an attractive dish that looks like you have gone to a lot of trouble’

You will need:

6 whole leaves kale, stalk removed and left in long strips
juice of half a lemon mixed with a spoon of olive oil
fillet of pork
6 slices smoked ham, thin slices

Preheat the oven to 200C.
Drizzle the mixed olive oil and lemon juice over the pork.  Season with salt and pepper.
Immerse the long strips of kale in boiling water and take them out immediately.
Lay alternate strips of kale and smoked ham on a piece of parchment paper.
Place the pork fillet on top of the laid out kale and smoked ham and roll the pork holding the parchment paper to secure it.  Tuck the ends of the ham and kale at the bottom and place the whole pork tenderloin on a baking dish brushed with some olive oil.
Roast for 45 minutes.  Remove from oven and allow to rest for 15 minutes before slicing.
This is also delicious served cold and cuts even more beautifully when after it is refrigerated.
