The Grilled Pork Cutlets with Watermelon-Cucumber Salad recipe is a very unique recipe made with a fish sauce. It is a Thai-inspired recipe.


  • 1 pound watermelon (about 1 small),

peeled and cut into small wedges (3 cups)

  • 1/2 large cucumber halved lengthwise

and sliced crosswise into half-moons

  • 1 jalapeno chilli, halved lengthwise

and very thinly sliced on the bias (seeded if desired)

  • 1/2 cup torn or small basil leaves
  • 2 teaspoons nam pla (Asian fish sauce)
  • 3/4 teaspoon whole coriander seeds,

toasted and ground

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 8 boneless skinless pork cutlets (2 1/2 ounces each),

pounded about 1/8 inch thick

  • 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • Coarse salt



  1. Heat grill to high. Toss together watermelon, cucumber, jalapeno, basil, fish sauce, coriander, and lime juice in a bowl.
  2. Drizzle pork cutlets with olive oil, and season with 1/4 teaspoon salt. Grill until grill marks appear and pork is cooked through, about 1 minute per side. Top pork with watermelon salad.
