Ingredients

¼ cup balsamic vinegar

¼ cup water

1½ tablespoons lemon juice, fresh

1½ tablespoon light brown sugar

4 center-cut pieces of fresh salmon, fillets with skin (boneless )

sea salt

black pepper, freshly ground

teaspoons vegetable oil

Method

1. For the glaze: In a small bowl, stir together balsamic vinegar, water, lemon juice, and brown sugar.

2. Pat dry the salmon very well and season with salt and pepper.

Heat oil in a non-stick skillet over a moderately high heat until hot, but not smoking.

3.Add salmon, skin side up, and sear until well browned, about 4 minutes. Press the fillet against the skillet with your fish spatula, and turn the heat down to medium-low. Turn the fish over and sear until just cooked through, an additional 3 to 4 minutes.

4. Carefully transfer the salmon to serving plates. Add the glaze to the skillet. Simmer stirring for about 2 minutes, until thickened and reduced to about a ⅓ cup (liquid will bubble vigorously and steam). Pour the glaze over salmon and serve.
