The Scandinavian Hot Dog
July 07, 2017
"You may think the hot dog is a purely American phenomenon, but in Scandinavia they have developed a completely different twist on the traditional dog as presented here in this recipe. To say that Scandinavians love hot dogs would be an understatement. Many European’s claim that Scandinavian hot dogs are some of the best in the world. It’s certainly true that the remoulade sauce gives their hot dogs a complex, sophisticated taste."

TO MAKE YOUR OWN SCANDINAVIAN HOT DOG
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil, turn down heat and place hot dogs in water. Continue to heat for 5 minutes or until hot dogs are heated through.
Place one hot dog in each bun and place two pickle slices (or more to your liking) lengthwise along the hot dog on each side.
Then top with 1 tablespoon each of remoulade, ketchup, mustard, chopped onions and crispy fried onions.
Serve immediately and enjoy.
TO MAKE THE DANISH REMOULADE SAUCED
Mince onion, parsley and capers. Be careful not to mince too much which will make them too watery.
Place 1 cup of mayonnaise, 1 tbsp. of mustard, 1 tbsp. of fresh lemon juice, and 1 tsp. of Worcestershire sauce in a medium mixing bowl.
Add the remaining ingredients and whisk everything together in the bowl.
Cover and chill 1 hour. (Rémoulade sauce is better if left for a few hours to let the flavors meld. which will allow the flavors to blend and intensify.)
Keep refrigerated. Will keep for several days in an airtight container in the refrigerator.
