Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo)


cab moo5 Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo)

Once I have mentioned about this food Cab Moo and introduced that it was one of my unhealthiest Thai food lists (but I like it :p)

Cab Moo is made from pig’s skin, deep fry in the hot vegetable oil. We can save this food outside the fridge for a long time and it will still be okay to eat.

If you eat potato chips when you are watching T.V at home, my aunts and I eat Cab Moo as a snack. icon smile Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo)

Prepare:

2 Kg. pig’s skin
1 tbsp. Salt
1 tbsp. light soy sauce or 1/2 tbsp. black sweet soy sauce
Oil from pork

Cooking Instructions:

1. Cut pig’s skin 1.5 inches long. Clean very well, use a thin blade scrape the hair and unpleasant spot out. Clean with water again and leave it drain.
2. Boil in boiling water until the skin is cooked and then leave it drain. Make sure there’s no water left. You can use hand towel press on each piece, now we really know icon smile Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo) it is really dry out. After that, add salt and light soy sauce.

3. Fry pork skin in very hot oil (can be vegetable oil or pig’s oil). However, the oil from pig will leave strange smell on the food. When each piece turns gold, remove from the pan.

4. Next, eat with Som Tam. !!! My Favorite food.. icon smile Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo) Or serve with northern style dipping sauce, Nam Prig Ong.

The other kind of Cab Moo is called Gag Moo, this type has a lot of fat from pork and I think that makes it taste better. icon smile Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo)

To do this one, just choose the skin part that has lots of fat. Cut it to dice shape and fry on medium heat until it turns gold. Don’t burn them. Be careful.

Lastly, sprinkle salt all over. icon smile Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo) It taste as good as Cab Moo when you eat with Som Tam. Well, anything tastes good with my Som Tam!! Haha icon smile Thai Food: Fried Pig Skins (Cab Moo)

    Hey,i really love to eat fried pig’s skin too for snack.But I was just worried and curious,is thr any possibilities that these food contain plastics to make them so crispy??or they are naturally this crispy? just wondering….will be looking forward for a reply.TQ!

  2. Joy says:

    You have heard the same thing as me!!! But I think the crispy fried pig’s skin is naturally that way even when you don’t add “plastic”.
    What I worried is Fried Banana, I heard some seller add plastic to make it crispy!. :(
