Preheat the broiler and line a broiler pan with foil. Place the salmon on the foil (reserve the marinade) and brush with olive oil. Broil for 5 to 7 minutes, or until the salmon is opaque. Meanwhile, strain the marinade to remove chopped onion and garlic, and simmer in a saucepan over medium-low heat until slightly reduced. Serve the salmon with the sauce on the side.

For more brain food-serve the salmon with a spinach salad! For added flavor-grill the salmon on a cedar plank.
