Did I do right or was I lucky?

Hey all, I've been chewing over my last ride home for a few days now as I like to go back over all my rides mentally to review what I did right/wrong/etc and I would like some input from the experienced riders here...

Scene: It's roughly 7pm and POURING rain as I'm coming down my normal road home. Almost exactly where I bring the bike up and exiting a long, left turn there was a patch of asphalt that when dry looks and acts identically to the rest of the road (@ 3ftx4ft rectangle) but when WET it becomes a slip 'n slide apparently. Anyway, as I came around the turn at around 30mph and right as I came up I felt the front tire push out slightly due to the wet surface. My reaction here (and this is what I'm curious on) was to lightly countersteer the push and IMMEDIATELY grab full clutch in order to get power off the rear wheel. My reasoning on that was that if the engine wasn't pushing the rear it would be less likely to skid out. Everything worked out fine but I am wondering if that was really a correct way of handling that situation or if there is a better way I could have done that.

Thanks All
