• 1 tbsp hot smoked paprika (reduce to 1/2 tbsp if you don't like it too hot)
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 2 ½ tbsp olive oil
  • 400g/ 14 oz piece of pork tenderloin, trimmed of any sinew
  • 1 fennel bulb, quartered then very finely sliced
  • ½ red onion, very finely sliced
  • 3 sweet pickled cucumber, finely chopped, plus 2 tbsp pickle juice
  • 2 tbsp quince paste (also known as membrillo)
  • 5 tbsp mayonnaise
  • 12 mini burger buns or rolls, halved


  • STEP 1

    Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix the paprika, 2 of the garlic cloves, 1 1 /2 tbsp oil and some seasoning. Rub all over the pork, then place on a baking tray lined with baking parchment. Pop in the oven for 15 mins, then turn the loin over and roast for a further 12-15 mins until cooked through.

  • STEP 2

    To make the slaw, mix the fennel, onion, pickle and juice, and remaining oil with some seasoning. Can be made a few hours ahead and chilled.

  • STEP 3

    For the aïoli, whizz the quince paste in a food processor with the mayo and remaining garlic. Remove the pork from the oven and leave to rest for 5 mins before slicing. To serve, spread a little aïoli in each roll and pile in the meat and slaw. Serve any extra slaw on the side, if you like
