Grilled Trotter

Original Recipe by Amy Beh

  • 1 pig’s trotter, approx 700-800g
  • 2 litres water


  • 1-2 Tbsp honey
  • 1/8 tsp thick soy sauce

    Sauce ingredients

  • 2 star anise
  • 5cm cinnamon stick
  • 2 bay leaves
  • 1 tsp white peppercorns, lightly crushed
  • 1 tsp Szechuan peppercorns (fah chiew)
  • 4 shallots, smashed
  • 1 big bulb garlic
  • 1 Tbsp rock sugar
  • 150ml light soy sauce
  • 1 Tbsp salt
  • 1 Tbsp oyster sauce

    Bring half a pot of water to a boil, add the trotter and blanch for 5-6 minutes. Remove and drain. Combine sauce ingredients and water in a deep saucepan. Cook to a boil then add the trotter. Lightly cover and simmer over low heat for 1-1½ hours until meat is just firm yet tender.

    Remove the trotter and brush with combined honey mixture. Place the trotter on a roasting rack. Grill in a preheated oven at 190°C-200°C for 15-20 minutes, or until the trotter skin is lightly golden brown and crispy.
