Perfect for a speedy supper for two, these fiery pork chops are coated in a delicious jerk paste and served with lime rice and a tasty slaw. 

  1. Rub the pork chops with the jerk paste. Set aside to marinate while you prepare the slaw. For the slaw, put the red cabbage, carrot, cucumber and vinegar in a bowl. Season well, then toss to combine.
  2. Preheat a griddle pan to medium. Cook the pork chops for 5-6 minutes on each side, until cooked through. Meanwhile, cook the rice following the packet instructions, then drain and set aside.
  3. Put the empty rice pan back on the heat and melt the butter. Stir in the spring onions and cook for 1-2 minutes, until softened. Return the rice to the pan and stir in the lime zest and juice. Serve the rice with the pork chops, slaw and lime wedges for squeezing over.
