  1. Step 1

    Combine the oil, lime juice, garlic and chilli, if using, in a jug. Pour half the oil mixture over the salmon in a shallow bowl and toss to coat. Season. Add the vinegar to the remaining oil mixture and stir to combine.
  2. Step 2

    Heat a non-stick frying pan over medium-high heat. Cook the salmon, skin-side down, for 3 mins or until crisp. Turn the salmon and reduce heat to medium. Cook for a further 1 1/2-2 mins for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a plate and cover loosely with foil. Set aside for 5 mins to rest.
  3. Step 3

    Place the beans in a heatproof bowl. Pour over enough boiling water to cover and stand for 3 mins. Refresh under cold water and drain well. Combine the melon, combined tomato, beans and shallot in a large bowl. Drizzle with the vinegar mixture and toss to combine.
  4. Step 4

    Divide the melon mixture among serving plates. Top with the salmon. Season and serve with lime wedges.
