Sesame Pork Appetizers is from the Cook'n with Agave collection.

In a dish large enough to hold the tenderloin, combine the sherry and soy sauce. Add the pork. Let marinate, 1-2 hours, turning several times. Remove the tenderloin. Spread the agave on a plate. Roll the pork in agave, then in sesame seeds. Place the tenderloin in a roast pan, roast at 350F for 20 minutes, or until meat thermometer registers 155F. Let stand 5 minutes, then slice thinly on the diagonal.

Combine all remaining ingredients for dipping sauce. Place in a bowl in the center of a serving platter. Surround the bowl with the spinach leaves with pork slices arranged on top.
