Pork Crackling


The best part of cooking a Pork dinner is the crackling, am I wrong? Cooking it in the Air Fryer is super easy, and cooks in around 20-30 minutes. You’ll never go back to cooking it in an oven.


PREP TIME: 5 mins
COOK TIME: 20 mins
TOTAL TIME: 25 mins
SERVINGS: 4 people
TEMP: 200°C or 390°F


  • 1 Pork Skin separated from the meat
  • 1 tsp Salt
  • 1 tsp Olive Oil



  • Separate the skin from the pork.
  • Dry the skin completely by leaving it uncovered on a plate and place in the fridge overnight.
  • A few hours before cooking, remove the skin from the fridge, and let it warm to room temperature.
  • Score the top of the skin with a sharp knife in several places.
  • Rub the oil on the top of the skin ensuring you penetrate the cracks you made from the scoring.
  • Rub the salt on the top of the skin also ensuring you penetrate the cracks you made.
  • Preheat the Air Fryer to 200°C or 390°F depending on the type of air fryer you have. This usually takes around 3 minutes.


  • Place the skin into the air fryer basket skin side up, and cook for 20 minutes.
  • After 20 minutes check on the progress. Some air fryers may take a bit longer, so if it’s not quite to your liking, add another 5 minutes and recheck it.
  • Once the crackling is cooked to your liking, remove it from the air fryer, and slice into strips and serve.
