Preheat oven to 350°F.
Rinse fish and pat dry with paper towels. Transfer to a large plate, season both sides with salt and pepper, and coat lightly with oil.
Heat a large cast-iron skillet (bottom lightly coated with oil) or nonstick frying pan over high heat until quite hot. Place fish skin-side up in pan, reduce heat to medium-high and cook until well browned, about 5 minutes. Turn fish over with spatula and cook for 1 minute.
Transfer pan to oven and cook until fish is nearly opaque in centre, about 7-10 minutes.
Divide fish among four plates and drizzle with balsamic vinegar.
