  3. Cut the unpeeled onions in half and place on a baking tray skin side up.
  4. Place pork on top skin side up and bake in the oven for an hour or until cooked through and a deep golden brown.
  5. Rest 30 minutes.
  6. Meanwhile, dry-fry or place the szechuan pepper in the oven for two minutes to release aroma.
  7. Then grind to a fine powder with the sea salt in a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle. Place in a dish. Serve slices of pork with lemon and szechuan salt and pepper.

Excellent pork belly recipe!! I cooked this for 45 minutes, and got a nice amount of crackling over most of the skin. The marinade flavours are quite subtle, but the Szechuan Pepper really makes the dish. Yum! Thanks for posting!
