Pre heat oven to 250C

Slice pork belly into 3cm wide strips, using sharp knife, score the skin diagonally in both directions.

Add 50g salt to water and bring to boil, add pork belly strips and cook on high for 2 minutes. Remove from water and pat dry with paper towel.

Rub 1 teaspoon of salt and 10 ml vinegar into the skin side of the pork, ensuring pork is completely covered. Then flip strips over and firmly massage the dry rub mixture into the fleshy side.

Place strips on oven rack and cook in pre-heated oven for 20 mins, then reduce heat to 180C for a further 20 mins. Remove from oven when crispy.

Make salad dressing by combining Szechuan pepper, Dijon, tangelo juice, garlic, vinegar, sugar, salt and pepper in a metal bowl, then slowly pour the oil in the centre of the bowl while whisking briskly to incorporate all ingredients together, pour dressing into salad mixture and lightly toss.

Cut pork belly into bite size pieces and arrange with salad on a platter. Garnish with lime and coriander.
