Carmelized Maple and Garlic Glazed Salmon

8 (2-inch-thick) salmon fillets (about 2 1/2 lb.)
3/4 teaspoon salt
3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 tablespoons butter or margarine
1/3 cup maple syrup, divided
1 tablespoon chopped fresh chives

Preheat broiler with oven rack 5 1/2 inches from heat. Sprinkle salmon with salt and garlic powder.

Melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add salmon, skin side up; cook 2 minutes. Place salmon, skin side down, on a lightly greased rack in a broiler pan; brush with half of syrup.

Broil salmon 5 to 7 minutes or until fish is cooked to desired degree of doneness and syrup caramelizes. Brush with remaining syrup; sprinkle with chives.
