Pork Belly With Salted Fish And Chillies

Wish I can, sincerely I wish I can form a tiny "Porki Society" at home. But one member in a society doesn't sound right right?  I know. I am the only pork is life family member. Other half half will never ever in any way, even if forced to, will come close to pork. That's why there's been only so far two pork recipes in this previous space of mine (BBQ Pork/Char Siew and Siew Yoke/Roasted Pork). Coming on board today is Pork Belly With Salted Fish And Chillies. Chinese Style (Fried Prawn Mee, Chilli Chicken Raisin, Salted Egg Yolk Fish & Chicken Wanton Soup). Sounds mouthwatering right? I know. Imagine, packing massive major punches of spiciness, saltiness and sourness, that bit of these tasting gravy/sauce sinking in tender, super moist and fatty pork slices? Oh-my, I am already salivating, salted fish (Pumpkin Salted Fish CurryBean Sprout Salted Fish, Salted Fish Potato Sambal, Salted Fish Pickle & Salted Egg Rice Congee) already branded as my favourite too, don't even question me on spiciness (Honey Chilli Chicken, Lemongrass Chilli Potato, Chilli Chicken & Pea Shoots Chilli) and sourness (Sour Fish Soup, Vegetable Pickle, Pepper Tamarind Prawn & Assam Curry Fish), making Pork Belly With Salted Fish And Chillies is super duper simple. Add all the ingredients and steam. That's all. Pork Belly With Salted Fish And Chillies will definitely rocket trill and excite those who are like me. 

1 piece of pork belly (about 400g) - clean and cut into bit sizes
100g (or more) kurau/threadfin salted fish - soaked and cut into pieces
1 tbsp sweet soya sauce
(Note - you can use the normal dark sauce and add tad bit of sugar)
6 shallots - remove skin and cut into two pieces
1 inch ginger - sliced
1 piece asam keping/dried tamarind
(Note - tamarind juice with all the ingredients before steaming or lime juice after steaming) 
1 green chilli - sliced into medium size pieces
2 red chillies - sliced into medium size pieces
4-5 birds eye chillies (optional)
Coriander leaves for garnishing
Salt to taste (use sparingly) 
Add all the ingredients into a bowl suited for steaming. 
Pour water for extra drippings (only if you prefer).
Steam (keep the heat/fire very low) till pork is soft and tender.
Remove and garnish with coriander leaves before serving.
