  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 pork tenderloin (1 pound)
  • 1/2 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1 French bread baguette (1 pound), sliced and toasted
  • Additional grated lime zest, optional


  1. In a small bowl, combine the first seven ingredients; rub over tenderloin. Place in a large resealable plastic bag; seal and refrigerate overnight.
  2. Place tenderloin on a rack in a foil-lined shallow roasting pan. Bake, uncovered, at 425° for 20-30 minutes or until a thermometer reads 145°. Let stand for 5 minutes before slicing.
  3. Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine the mayonnaise, lime juice and zest. Thinly slice pork; serve on toasted bread with a dollop of lime mayonnaise. Sprinkle with additional lime zest if desired.
