 The Lime Mojo (a sauce of olive oil, chilies, garlic and spices) provides a spicy, tangy 
counterpoint to the pork. Begin preparing the pork a day ahead.

 pork overnight.
 Cover remaining Lime Mojo and refrigerate.

Preheat oven to 450-F. Discard marinade from pork. Place pork on rack in large roasting pan. Roast 30 minutes. Reduce oven temperature to 300°F and roast until thermometer inserted into center of pork registers 150°F, about 45 minutes. Transfer pork to cutting board. Tent with foil; let stand 15 minutes. Cut pork into 1/2-inch-thick slices. Spoon reserved Lime Mojo over pork. Makes 6 servings.
