In a small bowl, mix equal parts fennel pollen, salt and black pepper. Rub all over the pork loin and let sit for an hour. Heat olive oil in a heavy-bottomed pan to smoking and sear the pork loin on all sides. Place in a 350°F oven and cook until desired doneness. Let meat rest for 10 minutes before serving.
