  1. Two 3/4-pound pork tenderloins
  2. Kosher salt and freshly ground pepper
  3. 1/3 cup chopped flat-leaf parsley
  4. 1 tablespoon minced sage
  5. 1 tablespoon minced rosemary
  6. 1 tablespoon plus 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  7. 1 pint strawberries, cut into 1/3-inch dice
  8. 1 cup diced papaya (6 ounces)
  9. 2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  10. 2 tablespoons minced red onion
  11. 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  1. Preheat the oven to 400°. Rub each tenderloin with 1/2 teaspoon of salt and 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. On a plate, mix the parsley, sage and rosemary; add the pork and pat to coat. Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes.
  2. Heat 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet. Add the tenderloins and brown over moderate heat, about 4 minutes per side. Transfer the skillet to the oven and roast the pork until an instant-read thermometer inserted in the thickest part registers 145° to 150°, about 15 minutes. Transfer to a carving board to rest for 10 minutes.
  3. In a medium bowl, mix the strawberries, papaya, cilantro, onion, lime juice and the remaining 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt. Carve the meat and serve with the strawberry salsa.
