"Plain fresh bread, its crust shatteringly crisp. Sweet cold butter. There is magic in the way they come together in your mouth to make a single perfect bite."--Ruth Reichl

2 lbs. pork tenderloin, trimmed
1/2 cup light soy sauce
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 tbsp. jerk seasoning

Caribbean Dipping Sauce

1 tbsp. butter
1/2 habanero pepper, seeded and minced
(I use jalapeno peppers which I have on hand)
2 tsp. grated fresh ginger
1 (18-oz) jar orange marmalade
2 tbsp. fresh lime juice
salt to taste
Blend and pour into serving bowl.

Soak 2 dozen wooden skewers in water for 20 minutes and drain well.
Cut tenderloin in 4" thin stips and place in zip-lock plastic bag.
Combine soy sauce, oil, garlic, and jerk seasoning. Pour over pork and marinate in refrigerator for 2-3 hours. Remove pork from bag and discard marinade
Thread pork onto skewers in an "s" shape. Place skewers in single layer on grill. Use low to medium heat. Cook approximately 8-10 minutes turning once. To cook in oven line a broiler pan with aluminum foil, place skewers on pan and broil 5 inches from heat, approximately 4 minutes per side. Serve warm with Caribbean Dipping Sauce
