Orange Apricot Pork Tenderloin

1 (1-lb) pork tenderloin
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
2 large garlic cloves
Rind and juice of 1 small orange
1 teaspoon of Rosemary
1 teaspoon of thyme
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes
10 dried apricots diced
5 large shallots diced

1. Preheat the oven to 475ºF.
2. In a small food processor, combine olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, orange zest, juice, rosemary, thyme and red pepper flakes. Process until smooth.
3. Dry the tenderloin with paper towels. Rub the mixture on all sides of the pork, as evenly as possible.
4. Place the pork on a roasting pan and tuck the shallots and apricots under the pork loin. Place in preheated oven. Cook for about 20 minutes at 475F until the pork reaches 145º F internal temperature. Remove the pork from the oven, cover with aluminum foil, and let rest for 10 minutes. Slice and add the cooked shallots and apricots on top.
