    Directions

    1. To make Tropical Fruit Relish, combine tropical fruit, red onion, red bell pepper, jalapeno, cilantro, lime juice, salt and black pepper. Prepare at least 30 minutes before serving time, or cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
    2. To make Ginger Soy Glaze, whisk together cornstarch and water; set aside. Combine soy sauce, pineapple juice, brown sugar, ginger paste, garlic paste and lime zest in a small saucepan. Bring to boil, stirring frequently, over medium-high heat. Whisk in cornstarch mixture, reduce heat and simmer for 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from heat and set aside.

    3. Season pork chops with salt and pepper. Grill pork chops, turning once, until a thermometer placed into the thickest part of the pork chop reaches 145 degrees. During the last 5 minutes of grilling, occasionally brush with glaze. Remove from grill and let stand 3 minutes before serving with tropical fruit relish.
