Default Some Chicharróns.....and shrimp

I had some pork skin in my freezer and found the time to fry it up.

These were from the butcher, not my pigs..



boiled them for about 45 minutes to render any fat...I wanted them to be fluffy.



used a spoon to scrape off any excess fat or meat..



dried in the oven overnight on the lowest setting...





ended up with about a sandwich baggie full.
heated some oil....





fried til puffy then sprinkled with salt...





they cooked fast...











my supper :)



sprinkled with SM Season All...



then drizzled with Cholula chili lime...



it was pretty tasty!!

I had to try an experiment.

I crushed some of the dried uncooked chicharron, and coated some shrimp..then fried til puffy.


These were insanely good.










Thanks for looking!

I've been calling you Jeanius for a while now. Glad these guys are finally catching on.

That is an Einstein move with the pork skin coated skrimps. Maaavelous, Daaaling!

Sooner or later I will learn not to open your threads when I get to work in the morning. Now I'm drooling and all I have right now is a Jimmy Dean Croissant and a little ole ham sandwich for lunch. It's going to be an awful long day.
