In a large bowl, combine pineapple, mango, red onion, scallions, cilantro, jalapeño, canola oil and salt. Cover and refrigerate until serving.Advertisement
Heat oven to 450°. Rub tenderloin with canola oil and season all sides with smoked paprika, salt and black pepper. Place in a roasting pan on a rack and roast at 450° for 20 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 145°. (Alternately, grill on an oiled grate over medium-high heat, turning several times, 14 to 18 minutes.) Tent with foil and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing thinly.
Serve pork with salsa and, if desired, Citrus-Chili Sweet Potatoes (recipe above).
