The day before I like to marinade the pork in the spice mix, so
take the fennel seed, lemon, garlic, sea salt, olive oil, chilli

perfect sausage shaped cylinder.
Chill for at least 4 hours, ideally overnight.
To cook the meat I either use a very hot griddle pan or even
better bbq on direct heat, around 200°C, remove the Clingfilm and
wipe away excess moisture and leave to air dry for a few minutes
then place onto your chosen griddle or bbq.
Leave for 3 to 4 minutes whilst the meat forms a rich caramel
on the exterior then turn a quarter and keep charring until the
whole cylinder is evenly crusted.
This should take around 12 minutes in total.
Leave to rest in a warm place.
For the greens, trim away any tough stalks then blanch until
tender in boiling salted water, then refresh in ice cold water and
remove any excess moisture once cool.
Take a sauté or fry pan and add the butter, soften the shallot

Serve with a fresh lemon wedge and some roasted new
