Preheat the broiler.
Place the salmon on a baking sheet and rub with olive oil, curry powder, and season with salt and pepper. Drizzle the honey over the salmon. Broil until crispy on top, 3-5 minutes, watch closely.
In a large skillet over medium heat, melt together 1 tablespoon butter, the curry paste, and ginger. Cook, 2-3 minutes until very fragrant. Add the broccoli, coconut milk, and soy sauce. Slide the salmon into the sauce and simmer for 3-5 minutes, or until cooked to your liking.
Meanwhile, melt together 5 tablespoons butter, the garlic, and a generous pinch of chili flakes. Cook until the butter is beginning to brown and the garlic just crisps a bit.
Serve the salmon and sauce over bowls of rice. Drizzle the butter over the salmon and top with basil and sprinkle your Margot's Morsels Killer Garlic crumbs over the top.
