In a large pot, add enough water to cover the pig ears and boil the pig ears with ginger, scallion and whole Sichuan peppercorn seeds for around 20 minutes. High fire during the whole process!
Transfer the pig ears out, set aside to cool down. Cut into small strips along the gristle. Transfer to serving bowl.
Prepare another large bowl; mix all the ingredients for salad dressing.
Pour the salad dressing on top of the pig ear strips on serving plate. Decorate with coriander.
If spicy taste is not so much loved, you can use 1 tablespoon chili oil + 1 tablespoon sesame oil. Fresh pepper sometimes is used as a side ingredient in this dish. Mix some shredded peppers with pig ear strips if you prefer.
