Score the pork belly and brush oil all over. Season with salt particularly on the skin. Place into the air fryer skin side up. Set the air fryer to 180C and cook for 1 hour until completely crispy, checking halfway through. Remove and rest for 15-20 minutes.

For dipping sauce combine the ingredients together.

Slice pork belly in half lengthways and then into smaller medallions. Serve with dipping sauce on the side.
