    Directions

    1. For guacamole, combine avocado, tomatoes, garlic paste, chili paste, 1 tbsp oil, 1 tbsp lemon juice and cilantro. Season and set aside.
    2. For pork, preheat oven to 425°F. Combine fennel seeds and ground fennel. Drizzle pork with 1 tbsp oil then press into fennel mixture to lightly coat. Heat remaining oil in a large, ovenproof frying pan over medium heat. Sear pork for 2 mins. Set aside. Add garlic, cut side down, along with onion and rosemary. Cook for 2 mins, or until onions soften slightly. Add butter and remaining lemon juice. Return pork to pan then place in oven for 8-10 mins, or until pork is just cooked. Cover with foil and let rest for 5 mins. Slice.
    3. To finish, press garlic from skin. Discard rosemary. Distribute guacamole between shallow serving bowls. Top with garlic, onion and pork. Whisk lime juice and chopped chili in a small bowl then drizzle over top. Sprinkle with cilantro and serve.
