Maple-Glazed Grilled Salmon

This was some delicious salmon! My friend Dorothy passed this recipe on to me with a glowing recommendation, so I was eager to try it. It definitely didn't disappoint! The flavor was sweet and tangy but not overpowering - a nice light glaze. Dorothy came across this recipe in a stack of magazine cut-outs from her mom, so I'm not sure exactly where it came from, but it's great!

Maple-Glazed Grilled Salmon

3/4 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 tablespoon red wine vinegar (I didn't have any vinegar so I omitted this)
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon dried mustard (I used regular Dijon mustard)
1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
1 salmon fillet (2 pounds)

In a bowl, combine the first 8 ingredients (everything but the salmon) and mix well. Pour 1/2 cup into a large resealable bag, add the salmon. Seal bag and turn to coat, refrigerate for up to 2 hours. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.

Before starting the grill, coat grill rack with nonstick cooking spray. Drain and discard marinade from salmon. Grill salmon skin side up over medium-hot heat for 2-4 minutes. Transfer to a double thickness of heavy-duty foil (about 17 in. x 21 in.). Spoon some of the reserved marinade over salmon. Fold foil around fillet and seal tightly. Grill 5-6 minutes longer or until fish flakes easily with a fork. Brush with remaining marinade.

Yield: 8 servings

Why was there no follow on bankruptcy then? The bailout of AIG FP went to (wow power leveling) hedge funds that bound credit swaps on Lehman failing or others betting on rating (wow power leveling) declines. AIG has drained over 100 billion from the government. Which had to go to those who bet on failures and downgrades. Many of whom (power leveling)were hedge funds. I-banks that had offsetting swaps needed the money from the AIG bailout or they would have been caught. Its an (wow powerleveling) insiders game and it takes just a little bit too much time for most people to think (wow gold) through where the AIG 100 billion bailout money went to, hedge funds and players, many of whom hire from the top ranks of DOJ, Fed, Treasury, CAOBO
