  1. Preheat the oven to gas 4, 180°C, fan 160°C. To make the salsa, toast the coriander seeds in a dry frying pan over a medium heat for 2 mins or until fragrant, shaking the pan occasionally. Crush roughly with a pestle and mortar, then tip into a mixing bowl with the strawberries, melon, lemon zest and juice, mint and 1 tbsp oil; season and set aside.
  2. Spray a large, ovenproof frying pan with oil and set over a medium heat. Add the salmon, skin side up, and fry for 3 mins or until golden brown. Flip over, season with pepper and transfer to the oven. Bake for 10 mins or until just firm and cooked through. Serve with the salsa spooned over.
