Pork Chops with Ginger, Mint and Lemon

A recipe inspired by one in Neil Perry's The Food I Love for lamb. This is pretty easy and basic and is very refreshing to the palate. It is especially good for hot muggy days with a glass of ice soda or lemonade. You only need a bit of effort to make the marinade.
Pound 1 small garlic clove, 1 tablespoon of chopped mint, 1 small nub of chopped young ginger, 1/2 teaspoon of sea salt, 1 tablespoon of chopped coriander leaves, in a mortar. Add a squeeze of lemon juice and about 2 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil. Marinade 2 pork chops in the mixture for at least 1 hour. Grill or pan fry the pork chops till slightly browned.
