Garlic and ginger pork belly with daikon salad

A few days ago we made this garlic and ginger pork belly that was absolutely delicious.

Nick brings home little treasures from the Hong Kong markets for me and I had a daikon left that hadn’t been used. A fresh and sharp daikon salad worked really well with the sticky and rich pork belly. This salad is in between a salad and a pickle.

The marinated belly pork cooked on low heat for about 3 hours. Screen Shot 2015-07-20 at 14.28.35


  • Pork belly marinade:
  • Soy sauce
  • Finely chopped ginger, chili and garlic
  • A bit of honey for the last 5 minutes if you like it sweet and sticky
  • Sesame oil and sesame seeds to pur over just before serving
  • Daikon salad:
  • Finely chopped daikon, works just as well with radishes
  • Lime juice
  • Red onion
  • Chili
  • Coriander
  • Salt
  • I had some yellow courgette growing in the garden so I trew those in too for a bit of colour.
