Prepare Ingredients:

Cook Pork:

Heat a deep-sided fry pan over medium-high heat. Pat pork dry with paper towel. Rub pork with olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until done to your liking. Set pork aside on a plate to rest, keeping pan over medium heat.

Cook Veg:

Add 12 the butter, the zucchini and silverbeet to the pan. Cook, tossing occasionally, for 3-4 minutes or until zucchini is tender and silverbeet has wilted a little. Add lemon zest (to taste), capers, mustard and peas. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 1-2 minutes or until heated through.

Finish Piccata & Mash:

Slice pork into 1cm strips on an angle and add to the veg in the pan, along with parsley (saving some for garnish). Check seasoning and adjust if necessary. Add remaining butter to pot of cooked potatoes and mash with a potato masher or fork until smooth. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
