Broiled marmalade and wasabi salmon

I have never been able to get salmon right...i ALWAYS overcook it or it just doesnt taste good. This recipe I stole from the gluten free girl site (that is right, i am the resident celiac on this website). The best part about this recipe is it is will have dinner in twenty minutes, and it is the best salmon I have ever boyfriend and i had it for valentines day (i think adding a little soy sauce would make it a little if you get up the nerve to play with the recipe a bit, let me know how it works out). It is deliciously sweet and a tiny bit spicy as well.

two salmon fillets, preferably wild king salmon from Alaska
one-half cup orange marmalade (splurge and buy the best, please)
one tablespoon Dijon mustard
one teaspoon wasabi (or, buy wasabi/Dijon mustard)
one teaspoon fresh, minced garlic
one-half teaspoon salt
one-half teaspoon cracked black pepper
one-half teaspoon fresh grated ginger

Preheat the oven to broil. Place the salmon on a tin-foil-covered baking sheet. Mix all the ingredients, besides the salmon, in a small bowl, and stir them well. Spoon half the marmalade delight over the salmon. Use a pastry brush to coat the salmon. Put the salmon under the broiler for six minutes, or until it's bubbly. Immediately brush the remaining marmalade mixture over the salmon and broil for a remaining two minutes. The inside will still be a slightly darker pink than the rest of the fish, but the salmon is now succulent and ready to eat.
