Heidi's Spicy and Sweet Salmon

We had dinner with Heidi Friday night and she served this really flavorful salmon. It originally came from a 1950's neighborhood cookbook, but I didn't write down the name of it. As the name says, this was a little sweet, a little spicy. Great flavor.

1/2 C. water
6 Tbsp maple syrup
2 Tbsp minced gingerroot
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 to 1 tsp red pepper flakes
4 (6 oz) salmon filets, 1-inch thick
1/4 tsp kosher salt

Combine water, maple syrup, gingerroot, garlic and red pepper flakes in saucepan and mix well. Simmer until reduced by half, stirring frequently. Let stand until cool. Arrange salmon skin-side down on an oiled broiler rack in a broiler pan. Sprinkle with kosher salt. Broil 4 inches from heat source for 5 minutes. Brush with maple syrup mixture. Broil for 6-10 minutes longer or until salmon flakes easily, basting with remaining maple syrup mixture occasionally.
