  1. Stir together balsamic vinegar, water, lemon juice, and brown sugar in a small bowl.
  2. Pat salmon dry and season with salt and pepper.
  3. Heat oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium high heat, not smoking. Increase heat to high, add salmon skin side up, and sear until well browned, about 4 minutes.
  4. Turn fish over and sear until just cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes more.
  5. Transfer salmon to plates and carefully add vinegar mixture to skillet (liquid will bubble vigorously and steam).
  6. Simmer, stirring, until thickened and reduced to about 1/3 cup, about 2 minutes.
  7. Spoon glaze over salmon.
  8. Serve and enjoy!
