Cajun Cracklins

Cracklins are a great pork Cajun snack, and goes wonderful with boudin, or cush cush. I personally love it with just Cajun Boudin and it makes a meal for me!

Cajun Cracklins


  • Pork meat with fat attached
  • Oil for frying
  • Salt and pepper (red and black) to taste


  1. Cut pork into 2-inch squares. You should cut for skin, fat, and meat on each square.
  2. Place the pork squares in a hot iron pot. Do not overcrowd the pieces.
  3. Add about 4 inches of oil making sure all pieces are covered with the oil.
  4. Cook over high heat until cracklings (pork squares) are browned and floating to top. Stir constantly to keep the pork cracklings from sticking and burning.
  5. Remove from grease with strainer and pour out onto absorbent paper towels. Salt and pepper the cracklings while hot.
  6. Store in a tightly closed container.
