Frankfurters wrapped in bacon and grilled are popular throughout the western United States. This San Fran dog is rendered gourmet through a simple lettuce slaw slathered in a creamy caraway seed and pickle mayo.
- To make a remoulade, finely chop the capers, gherkins, spring onion and a handful of basil. Mix in the lemon zest and mayonnaise. Season with salt and pepper and 1-2 tsp caraway powder (toast 1 Tbsp caraway seeds until fragrant, cool and grind to a fine powder).
- Make a slaw of shredded lettuce, sliced tomato, chervil and enough remoulade sauce to bind.
- Wrap frankfurter in a piece of streaky bacon and grill until cooked.
- Warm sliced hot dog bun, add a lick of Dijon mustard, the frankfurter, and top with slaw.
