What a light and easy meal to make for the entire family. I love the use of fresh citrus juice. I never thought of using lime for pork. I have used apple in the past and thought of using oranges. I bet the lime gives it a refreshing flavor profile, right? I think I will use this recipe this weekend. Thanks!

What is canola oil please? Don't think we have it in England so a suggestion for substitute please?? This sounds a lovely way to cook pork chops and will make it soon! Thank you. viv

A light oil like vegetable oil will work, as well
