Place the skillet with salmon under the grill and cook the salmon until it has a light char or light brown color. You do not have to cook both sides. the other side of the salmon cooks in the broth.

Remove the salmon from the skillet and pace the skillet on the stove top. Add the oil, garlic, ginger and brown sugar and stir to caramelize the garlic.
