Plating was not my concern with this dish.
I was experimenting with a piece of pork belly and trying a different way to get the skin crispy crunchy but not in a way that is a hard bite type. I wanted to be able to bite with my front teeth not and not my side teeth.
I wanted that tender skin crunch with sticks to your lips fatty underlining then the meat perfumed with 5 spice and other fragrant flavors. It involved hundred of tiny pin hole in the skin blanching, more holes, vinegar, salt crust and marinades.
But in the end it 24 hours later it worked.
