To make the marinade: In a medium bowl, whisk together wine, soy sauce, vinegar, ginger and cumin. Add salmon and turn to coat. Allow to sit, skin side up, while peas are cooking.

To make peas: In a saucepan, bring 1 quart water to a boil; add peas and cook 10 seconds. Drain in a colander and run under cold water to stop cooking. Blot dry on paper towels.

In a bowl, whisk together mint, lemon juice, oil, soy sauce, salt, and pepper. Add peas; toss to coat. Adjust seasoning to taste.

To make the salmon: In a large nonstick skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Add salmon, skin side down, and partially cover skillet. Cook until skin is crisp and salmon is just opaque throughout, 3 to 5 minutes per side, depending on thickness.
