Pork Skin Puffs

With a selection of delicious pork cuts available, cooking methods and flavour pairings are exceptionally varied when it comes to pork recipes. Take a look at the Pork Skin Puffs recipe below, as tried and tested by professional chefs - Why not give it a try?


  • Pork skin
  • Salt


Take your pork skin and remove as much fat / flesh as possible without piercing the skin
Boil the skin in a large pot of water for around two hours, until very soft
Remove from the water and allow to cool a little before scraping any remaining fat off the skin with a spoon
Lay the skin onto a dehydrator tray and dehydrate at 68°C for around 24 hours until the skin is brittle and a little browned
Break the dried skin into small pieces
Drop the skin pieces into a fryer at 200°C and fry for around 20 secs until fully puffed and crisp
