Preheat oven to 250°C (230°C fan-forced). Rub sea salt into scored rind. Season cut side of pork with salt and place pork cut side down on a rack set in a roasting pan. Roast pork for about 30 minutes, or until rind is crisp and golden. Reduce oven temperature to 160°C (140°C fan-forced), and roast until an instant-read thermometer inserted into centre of pork registers 65°C, about 2 1/2 hours. Transfer pork to a carving board to rest for 20 mins. In a medium bowl, whisk lime juice, vinegar, sugar, fish sauce and ginger. Stir in onion and set aside at room temperature for 20 mins to soften onion. Place watermelon in a large shallow bowl. Spoon dressing over watermelon and turn gently to coat. Sprinkle with basil and mint.

Extended Trading Hours!

One night before cooking, using a sharp knife or box cutter, deepen scoring on rind and extend existing scoring so that all of rind is scored. Be sure to cut all the way through rind and fat until you reach meat (do not cut through meat). Refrigerate pork uncovered for at least 12 hours and up to 1 day. Let stand at room temperature for 1 hour before cooking.
