AT A GLANCE
The ultimate bar snack, pork scratchings make a fine sandwich to go with drinks. Here, spiced pork scratchings come together with garlicky aïoli and a crunchy slaw in this hard-to-beat snack. Start this recipe a day ahead to dry out the pork skin.
|01||Place pork skin on a wire rack on a tray and refrigerate uncovered overnight to dry out.|
|02||Preheat oven to 140C. Rub skin with vinegar, slice into thin strips and arrange on a wire rack in a roasting pan so they’re not touching and roast, turning occasionally, until fat renders (50 minutes to 1 hour), then increase oven to 200C and roast until crisp and browned (15-20 minutes).|
|03||Dry-roast spices in a saucepan until fragrant (30-40 seconds), then season scratchings to taste with spice mix and salt.|
|04||For apple and cabbage slaw, combine ingredients in a bowl and season to taste.|
|05||To serve, butter bread slices and spread half with aïoli. Top with pork scratchings, then slaw, sandwich with remaining bread and serve.|
