Add some seasoning – pepper and lemon juice and soya sauce. Fry the pork fillets on medium high heat till done.

For the scapes: Add butter to a medium hot pan. Braise the garlic scapes in the butter and wine until soft, about 10 minutes.

Add the lemon juice and some salt and pepper for seasoning

For the other greens, heat a wok until it is very hot – add the oil and then the greens.

Flash fry the greens for a few minutes and add the soya sauce, lemon juice and pepper. Taste for seasoning.

To serve, add the greens to the plate. Slice pork and serve atop the greens.

Drizzle the juices from the pan over the pork and some lemon infused olive oil over the whole dish.

Garnish with garlic scapes.

Tip of the day

 
Basic basil care
Basil wilts quickly, but will perk up when left in cool water for about 30 minutes. Then blot the leaves dry and store them at room temperature in a tightly sealed bag. If basil is stored in the refrigerator, it turns black.
