Moroccan-style Hot Dog
Ok…this is really a sausage on a bun. But one gone wild with exotic flavours and an array of pleasing textures. We’ve used lamb sausage here, but visit your local butcher for other options.
1⁄4 cup harissa sauce
2 tbsp light mayonnaise
4 lamb sausages (or your favourite)
1 red onion, cut into thick rings
4 hot dog buns
1 cupCreamy Garlic Hummus
juice of 1 lemon (optional)
1⁄2 cup julienned fennel (optional)
- In a bowl, stir harissa sauce with mayonnaise. Stir in enough water to loosen mixture. This will be the finishing drizzle so it needs to be slightly runny.
- Grill lamb sausages and onion rings over medium-high heat, turning frequently, until sausages are cooked through and onions are lightly charred. Remove each from grill as they are done.
- Lightly toast hot dog buns on grill, if you wish. Spread both halves of buns with Hummus. Scatter bottom halves with fennel. Nestle warm sausages in centre of buns and top with onions. Drizzle with harissa sauce, then squeeze fresh lemon juice overtop.
