- 20ml olive oil
- 60ml hoisin sauce
- 60ml honey
- juice of 1 lemon
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 1 red chilli, seeded and sliced
- 4 pork fillets, trimmed

- 20ml Maldon salt
- 20ml butter

Mix the glaze ingredients together and refrigerate for 10 minutes.
Place the fillets on a working surface and season well. Rub the glaze all over the fillets and pan-fry until cooked, about 20 minutes. Remove and keep warm.
Melt the butter and olive oil in a frying pan and gently sauté the apple and onion. Remove and keep warm until needed.

Slice the fillet and place on a serving dish. Serve warm with the leeks and apple and onion slices.
