Les ingrédients

Pour people
  • Pork skin : 500 g
  • Maldon salt : 12 pinch(es)


  • ETAPE 1

    Preheat the oven to 220'C.

  • ETAPE 2

    Score the skin with a sharp knife in a criss cross pattern.

  • ETAPE 3

    Rub the salt into all the score marks. The salt draws moisture out which allows better crackling.
    Leave for 15 minutes.

  • ETAPE 4

    Place on a rack in a baking tray and cook in the oven for 10 minutes before reducing the temperature to 160'C. Cook for a further 30 minutes or until the crackling is golden brown and crisp.

  • ETAPE 5

    Allow to cool before serving.

Chef's tip

«Any good butcher will be able to sell you the skin separately to a pork joint for this recipe.»
