Tag / salted fish pork belly

To be frank, I never did grow up with pork belly with salted fish dish, I supposed it was a dish that wasn’t particularly popular up north in Penang where I grew up, that or my family was not privy to the greatness of this combination during that time.

My first time having this was at Lucky Loke restaurant over a decade ago and been a fan ever since.

A few days ago, I finally recreated this dish in the kitchen, and it turned out to be pretty simple and rather delicious as well!

Here goes the recipe –

Ingredients:

  • Pork belly 300 gram, remove skin, marinate with equal portion (2 tablespoon) of cooking caramel, rice wine, and oyster sauce
  • 3-4 bulbs shallots, cut in quarters
  • 2 inch ginger, thin sliced
  • 6 dried cili, fresh cili (optional)
  • 3-4 clove of garlic
  • spring onion for garnish
  • 2 table spoon salted fish, cut in small chunks
  • 3-4 tablespoon cooking oil

it's a stirring and frying affair

Cooking Instructions:

  • heat up pan, fry garlic and salted fish
  • add dried cili & shallots, fry till fragrant
  • add pork, medium heat, cook 5-10 mins depending on thickness
  • add fresh cili & spring onion last min

Result was fantastic and require no additional seasoning, now I just need to get me a small claypot to complete the look & feel properly instead of using a frying pan and serving bowl.
