Just start by making the marinade, and letting the salmon soak up it up for an 1-hour in the refrigerator. Also, set some of the marinade aside to use as a sauce at serving time, then add the salmon to the rest and marinate for one hour in the refrigerator.

Line a baking sheet with foil, and broil the salmon for 8-10 minutes. The time will be dependent on the thickness of the filets. We typically keep it in their for 10 minutes, because I prefer to eat fully cooked salmon.
