Citrus and Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

I had wanted to make pork tenderloin but didn't know how I wanted to prepare it and I sort of just made this up. It was what I had on hand and it was so good! I would definitely make this again!

Citrus and Rosemary Pork Tenderloin

1 pork tenderloin
olive oil
2 teaspoons orange peel, grated (really it is whatever you think will cover your tenderloin)
2 teaspoons rosemary, finely chopped (again however much you think will cover the tenderloin)
2 1/2 teaspoons chopped garlic
pinch of cayenne pepper

Preheat oven to 350.
Place pork tenderloin on baking pan and season all sides with salt and pepper. Add enough olive oil to coat pork on all sides. 
In a small bowl combine, orange, rosemary and garlic. With your hands, take mixture and spread evenly all over pork tenderloin. Last, take small pinch of cayenne pepper and season top of the tenderloin just for an extra little kick. 

Bake the tenderloin until medium rare (usually 145-150 on meat thermometer).
