Watermelon Pickle and Crispy Pork Salad

Last week was dominated by pork, pork belly in particular. I ate at Ssam Bar twice, indulging in their transcendent steamed buns and about a dozen other porcine treats. I also dined at the Fatty Crab and while, for a change, I ordered other proteins like duck and chicken, pork belly played a supporting role. Above, a salad of crispy pork belly and pickled watermelon featured great texture and color contrasts and flavor that was smoky, savory, and sweet.

    We just returned from New York and ate at the Fatty Crab twice. The pork belly with watermelon is to die for and I am going to try to duplicate it this week. We also felt the pork buns were better than at Momofuku Ssam Bar, but the hamichi there was fabulous!!
