When my friends at Twist’d Q sent me some of their new TQ Singles to try, I knew which one I wanted to try first -The Fire Roastin’ Cajun Seasoning! I love the flavors of cayenne pepper, paprika, garlic and onion seared in to a nice protein. Having the convenience of a pre-measured pack that creates the perfect meal every time is a bonus. Now sit back, grab your favorite glass of red wine, and enjoy this post for Twist’d Q Blackened Pork Chops with Mango Salsa.

To cool off the blackened pork chops I made a simple salsa featuring roasted corn, mango, red pepper, red onion, cilantro, mint and lemon juice.

Setup your grill to 350° and place a cast iron pan inside to preheat (NOTE: If you do not want to use a grill for this recipe, it can easily be made on your stovetop). Once the pan is preheated, add some neutral oil with a high smoke point (e.g. Grape Seed oil) to the pan and place the chops inside. Add a knob of butter once cooking to add some additional flavor.

After 4 minutes flip the pork chops to the other side.

After the pork chops measure 140° internally, pull them and let them rest for 10 minutes. The carryover cooking will bring them up to a perfect 145°.
