  1. Thoroughly combine minced garlic with spice blend. Pat pork tenderloin dry with paper towel. Brush tenderloin with oil; sprinkle with garlic/spice mixture. Press into tenderloin. Place long sheet of heavy-duty aluminum foil on a baking pan. Place tenderloin on foil; bring edges of foil up at sides and ends; fold in allowing top of pork tenderloin to remain exposed. Sprinkle top of tenderloin with Morton® Sea Salt (Coarse).
  2. Roast meat at 450 degrees F for 20 to 25 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees F for medium or 170 degrees F for well done. Allow meat to rest 10 minutes. Remove and discard salt crust. Brush off any excessive salt from roast, if desired. Slice and serve.

While this was good, I prefer more of a glaze on my tenderloin. This is pretty much a tradtional type of recipes; with the salt/spices acting as a "cust", for lack of a better word. Do follow the the advice and make SURE the seasoning blend you use does NOT contain salt. I thought the one I had on hand, didn't contain any, so I added the salt to that and was ready to use it. Thought I'd check the tast...just to be sure and it was soooo salty!! I'm glad I checked it. I think this recipe is worth a try for those of you that like the traditional type of tenderloin. Experiment with different spices too. The salt *does* add something to this recipe; I wouldn't change the amount.
