Supermarket Crackling Pork Salad
You can get cooked roasted pork (烧肉/siu yok) from the supermarket deli or the Chinese roast meat stalls at the market. You can also make your own roasted pork from scratch.
You can add a carb such as soba, quinoa or brown rice to have a more filling meal.
- one piece (about 125g) of uncut roasted pork (from the supermarket or Chinese roast meat stall)
- one serving (50-80g) of romaine lettuce roughly cut, washed and spin dry; can be prepared a night before and stored in an airtight food container
- one avocado pitted and sliced
- handful of cherry tomatoes
- lemon wedge & chopped spring onions to garnish
- 1 tbsp favourite salad dressing see cooking note
- Reheat the roast pork to crackling skin deliciousness. Place the roasted pork on a baking tray lined with baking paper. Roast the pork at 200°C (392°F) at the topmost rack nearest the broiler at the “fan grill” or similar mode for 10 minutes (no preheating needed), or until the skin is crackling. Slice the roast pork to bite-sized chunks. Click here for more detailed tutorial.
- Make the salad. While waiting for the oven, fill salad bowl with romaine lettuce and topped with the cherry tomatoes, avocado, spring onions & lemon (as garnish), along with a saucer of salad dressing at the side. Top with the sliced roast pork when it is ready.
- I’m using Yuzu salad dressing from Daiso. You can use any favourite brand. To make a quick low-carb dressing, add a few drops of lemon juice (to taste) & black pepper to a tablespoon of extra-virgin olive oil. Check out some salad dressings recipes here.
- The roasting time may vary slightly depending on the make and model of your oven.
