In a medium bowl, whisk together lime juice, honey and a tablespoon of oil; add cucumbers, pineapple, spring onions, jalapeno and basil. Season with salt and pepper; toss gently to combine. Generously season salmon on both sides with salt and pepper. In a large skillet, heat remaining tablespoon of oil over medium-high; add salmon, skin side down. Cook until skin is crispy and salmon is opaque about three-fourth of the way through, four to six minutes. Turn salmon over and continue to cook just until opaque throughout, two to four minutes. Serve salmon topped with salsa.
