Olive Brushed Pork Cutlets

8 boneless pork loin cutlets -- trimmed of fat, and no more than 1/2" thick
Salt -- to taste
Freshly-ground black pepper -- to taste
2 tablespoons green olive paste
1 tablespoon lime or lemon juice
1 cup dry bread crumbs -- or more if needed
2 eggs -- lightly beaten with
1 tablespoon water
Vegetable oil -- as needed


Lightly pound pork cutlets between plastic wrap to thin them out and season with salt and pepper. Mix the green olive paste with lime juice and spread each cutlet with some of this mixture. Dip the slices on both sides in bread crumbs, then in egg and in bread crumbs again, making sure all sides are well coated.


With the dull edge of a chef's knife, score the coating in a criss cross pattern and let the slices stand, on a rack, at room temperature for 30 minutes to an hour to let coating set up. (While this is setting up, make your "Carrot Puree With Vanilla" side dish, see recipe.)


In a deep skillet heat 1-inch of vegetable oil to 375 degrees. Deep fry cutlets, olive coated side up, for 2 minutes or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the meat with a spatula and drain on paper towels.


This recipe yields 4 servings.
