So many foods have multiple uses. These Seafood Sausage Dogs were the leftovers from a seafood sausage pasta that I made.
Creative Uses for Seafood
I love the idea of these seafood sausages. I get a monthly shipment of seafood from SITKA SALMON SHARES. Depending on our home schedule, sometimes we get a little build up of product. So just like I do with other proteins, I will make extra of the protein so I can pull it from the fridge when I do not have time to cook a full dinner. In this case, the seafood sausages were originally made for my SEAFOOD SAUSAGE PASTA. Instead of making a pasta with Italian or smoked sausages, I used seafood.
When is a Hot Dog Not a Hot Dog?
So how do you round out the seafood sausage dog with condiments? If this were a traditional hot dog, one would use mustard, ketchup (sorry Chicago), relish, tomatoes, onions, lettuce, etc. In my recipe, I played off the idea of toppings on a piece of a fish. My salsa base was mango mixed with jalapenos and red onions. Here is an example of a MANGO SALSA TOPPED SALMON I made a while back.
Given that this post will show up right before FATHER’S DAY, some how Hot Dogs seems so appropriate. Is it that Father’s can be hot dogs or that grilling hot dogs is such a fatherly image? Now, I have made some unique style hot dogs including:
