(Makes 24)

  • 500g (1.1lb) pork belly

  • 2 tablespoons salt

  • 1½ tablespoons honey

  • ½ cup coconut water


  • 1 cup coconut water

  • 1½ cups chicken stock or broth

  • ¾ cup dark soy sauce

  • 2 teaspoons five spice

  • ½ teaspoon black pepper

  • 1 tablespoon palm sugar

  • 1½ teaspoons garlic – crushed

  • 2 teaspoons ginger – grated

  • 1 cup spring onions – sliced

  • 1 chilli – sliced in thirds


Preheat the oven to 200°C (392°F).

Rub the pork belly skin with salt. 

Place the pork belly (skin up) into a deep oven pan.

Set aside. 


Combine all the sauce ingredients together in a small jug.

Pour the sauce mixture around the base of the pork. (Do not pour over the skin).

Plave the pan into the oven. 

Bake for 20 minutes at 392°F (200°C).

Lower the heat to 356°F (180°C).

Bake for a further 25-30 minutes, or until the pork crackling is crispy.

Remove the pork and set it aside.

Strain the pan juice into a saucepan.

Add the ½ cup coconut water and the 1½ tablespoons honey.

Allow to simmer until the sauce reduces by half or becomes a thick glaze.

Cut the pork into bite-sized squares and then place them onto the serving spoons. (Crackling side up)  

Pour a small quantity of glaze around each pork square.

Garnish with snow pea shoots.

Serve warm.
