    1. Place coconut and orange juice in blender or food processor. Blend until nearly smooth. Strain, pressing liquid from solids; discard solids. Add salt and hot pepper sauce to orange juice mixture; divide in half and reserve.
    2. Prepare medium-hot coals in covered kettle style grill. Meanwhile place spinach in large skillet; drizzle with half of orange juice mixture; cover and simmer 1-2 minutes, until spinach is wilted. Set aside and keep warm. Grill chops for 10-12 minutes, turning once and basting with remaining half of orange juice mixture until internal temperature on a thermometer reads 145 degrees Fahrenheit, followed by a 3-minute rest time.
    3. Divide steamed spinach among 4 plates; top each with a chop and garnish with toasted coconut.
    4. Serves 4.
    5. Wine suggestion: Serve with a chilled Riesling.
