The trick to perfectly cooked salmon is to leave it alone. Once you add it to the pan, don't move it until it's ready to remove and you'll end up with a crispy top and juicy, medium-rare to medium flesh at the bottom.

Steps 2 and 3 are identical. What happens with the vinegar, etc. which is never mentioned after the ingredient list?
