Easy Crispy Siew yok instructions
- Rub the 5spice powder all over. Pack on the cheap salt on the skin till about 1-1.5cm high. That's why u need cheap salt. Expensive salt don't stick to themselves..
- Bake at 200deg for 30mins. Use a xuetizi (those circular top down oven) as the skin crispy-fy more later. Fan forced oven is a heat and miss depending on your brand and oven heat..
- Remove the salt crust. It will come off easily as one whole piece..
- Bake again on top rack at 200deg for 30-40min till skin is blistered. My fan forced oven is uneven, so u can see the uneven blistering. I was too lazy to take out the xuetizi..
- Take a spoon or fork and knock on the skin. You can hear the crispiness immediately~~ yum. Crispiness remains even after it was left out for a while (if u use a xuetizi). I moved mine out and blasted it hahaha.
- Note: some ppl think poking the skin with a fork helps. It's ok, I don't see much difference. But u really have to slather on the salt esp the corners. Else they won't dehydrate in the first part and blister up later.
