Place it on the wire rack. The rack should be on a roasting pan.

Step 3

Now combine the cucumber, avocado, cucumber, mint and onion in a bowl. Add sugar in it and season. Combine the fresh mayonnaise and the fresh lime juice and rind in another bowl.

Step 4

Now remove prepared pork from pan and remove the fat and crackling. Reserve crackling. Shred the pork meat and cut crackling into strips.
