Without the fats, these Crispy Pork Skin is addictively good for our skin. Esp when air fried, most of the excess oil are dripped into the bottom of the bottom, leaving only the goodness of the skin – Crunchy, yummy and ……unstoppable when eating!

The process of making this snack is quite similar to making sio bak – less the marination.

1st, you will need to score and poke holes of the skin, cover liberally with salt (not overly) and air dried overnight in the chiller without covering until the skin is dry and tacky.

When the skin becomes dry and tacky, remove from the chiller and cut it into shoestring strip.

Air Fryer Basket is preferred as the grill pan does not have enough depth to hold the frying (flying) pork rinds and some will fly underneath the grill pan.

It will taste good in its original flavour or you can choose to add some spice to it.

I sprinkled some Japanese Chilli powder over the ready-fried pork skin

    Hi,
    Thank you so much for your sharing. can these 6 recipe for CNY instead of using Air Fryer, can it be deep oil frying, bbq in an oven or a toaster? As I don’t have any Air Fryer.

      Hi Karen,

      No worries if you do not have air fryer. Deep frying definitely! Anything just taste better with deep frying though less healthy. If not, oven or broiler works too! just that temperature and time wise will be higher and longer. Personally I have not tried using the oven for these recipes.. but if you do try.. please update here! I think it will helps in other readers who do not have air fryer as well! Looking forward to see ur goodies!

      these were tasty but i couldnt mangae to make them into a nice shape. I used coconut oil to fry them, dont know if that made a difference. next time i will try regular oil to see if it did.
