crispy pork trot­ter

• 2 knobs of gin­ger, sliced • 3 bay leaves

• 2 cin­na­mon sticks

• 4 pieces of liquorice

• 3g Sichuan pep­per

» In a pot, place the pork trot­ter and fill the pot with wa­ter — un­til it cov­ers the pork trot­ter.

» Add gin­ger slices into the pot and al­low it to soak for three min­utes. This is to get rid of the gamey flavour from the pork.

» Re­move the pork trot­ter and wash it thor­oughly.

» In a dif­fer­ent pot, place the cleaned pork trot­ter and fill it with wa­ter — un­til it cov­ers the pork trot­ter. Add the re­main­ing in­gre­di­ents and bring it to a boil.

» Once the wa­ter is boil­ing, turn the fire down and slow cook it for 45 min­utes.

» Re­move the cooked pork trot­ter, drain then leave it out for the skin to dry.

» In a wok, heat the oil to 160ºc and deep-fry the pork trot­ter un­til a crisp skin is achieved.
