Tonight I cooked a couple of strips of pork belly in the toaster oven and mixed the fatty crunchy pieces of pig flesh with a salad highlighting Kensington Pride mango, lime zest, lime juice, fennel, and radishes.

Dry the surface of a couple of strips of pork belly with paper kitchen paper.
Place the strips on a rack and put the rack on a baking tray.
Place the pork belly into the toaster oven which has been preheated to 200 °C (392 °F).
Cook for 45 minutes.
While the pork belly is cooking get out your trusty mandolin and slice some radish, red onion, and fennel.
Chop some coriander (also known as cilantro in some countries) and continental parsley.
Remove the zest of a lime.
Remove the juice of a lime.
In a bowl add the slices of radish, red onion, and fennel. Also add the lime zest and lime juice. Mix in a pinch of iodised salt.
When the pork has finished cooking remove the pork to rest on a cutting board.
Pour the rendered pork fat into the mixing bowl with the salad elements.
Mix the rendered pork fat through.
Cut the pork belly into small cubes.
Dice the mango and add to the bowl.
Add the chopped coriander and parsley to the salad bowl.
Toss in the cubes of pork belly and mix through.
Transfer everything to a bowl and eat with chopsticks.
