About this recipe:This pork fillet is rubbed with an aromatic spice mixture and roasted in the oven the next day with maple syrup. I often make this when I have guests. The pork is also good for a buffet, as it is great warm or at room temperature.
1 whole pork fillet
100ml maple syrup
For the spice seasoning
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon sea salt
1 tablespoon black pepper
1 tablespoon dried oregano
2 teaspoons ground coriander
1 teaspoon ground cloves

Mix all spices together and rub the pork loin with it. Wrap in cling film and place overnight in the refrigerator.
The next day, preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Heat some olive oil in a large pan until very hot (but don't allow it to smoke). Sear the pork fillet on all sides for 3-5 minutes. Place into a not-too-large roasting tin, just big enough for the pork loin. Pour the maple syrup over the pork and pour water into the pan around the meat. Leave to roast for 10 minutes, then baste with the roasting juices. Roast for another 25 minutes until the meat is cooked through.
Remove from the oven and stand for 10 minutes. Then cut into slices and serve with the juices.
You can use honey instead of maple syrup if preferred.
