Preheat the oven to 425°F.

Brush the pork tenderloin on all sides with the olive oil.

In a small bowl, combine the kosher salt, black pepper, ground cumin, oregano, red pepper flakes, minced garlic, fresh lime juice, and fresh orange juice.
4
Spread the spice mixture on the pork, rubbing it in gently.
5
In a large oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat, sear the pork for 2 to 3 minutes on all sides, until lightly browned.

Transfer the skillet to the oven and continue cooking for 15 to 20 minutes, until the internal temperature registers between 145-160°F.
