If my father-in-law is here with us, I’m sure he will be so proud of me coming up with different variations of salt and pepper dishes (like this Salt and Pepper Pork Ribs) that are inspired by his specialty – Salt and Pepper Pork. It’s one of my favourite dishes that I can never have enough. 😀
Salt and Pepper Pork Ribs, Chicken and Calamari
If salt and pepper flavour is your kind of thing, do check out my Salt and Pepper Chicken Recipe and Crispy Calamari Recipe. 😉 Since all these recipes require frying, I highly recommend that you prepare the pork ribs, chicken and calamari together so you can fry them all in the same batch of oil. When done, all you gotta do is to toss these crispy fried morsels with more salt, pepper and 5-spice powder. Easy peasy. It’s also a great way to maximise use of your frying oil.
Only Need Salt, Pepper and 5-Spice Powder
For most if not all salt and pepper dishes, we only need 3 kinds of seasoning – salt, pepper and 5-spice powder. I normally use equal parts of each but you can always adjust to your preference.
This time, I also added some chopped red and green chillies just to give that extra boost of colour.
Cook some rice and vegetables and you’re all good to go. Enjoy this dish!
