    1. Prepare a medium-hot fire in grill. Grate peel and squeeze juice from lemons. Stir peel into juice; set aside.
    2. Cut each tenderloin into 6 pieces, making 1 1/2 - 1 3/4-inch-thick medallions; place in shallow dish or pie plate. Drizzle with oil and toss until pork is evenly coated.
    3. Combine salt, garlic and pepper in small dish. Sprinkle over pork medallions in dish. Toss until evenly coated.
    4. Grill pork medallions, cut sides down and uncovered, over direct heat for about 8 minutes or until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F., turning medallions over halfway during grilling. Transfer medallions to a clean, shallow serving dish and allow to rest for 3 minutes. Pour lemon mixture over medallions and serve. Discard lemon juice mixture after serving.
