Hot Hotdogs Mon, 09/18/06 3:39 PM (permalink)
From USA Today:

Folks who regard hot dogs as mystery meat may be in for an aquatic surprise: salmon franks.
That's right, hot dogs, made from imported salmon. On whole-grain buns, no less. They'll be out later this month, at $3.49, when gourmet hot dog chain Franktitude is scheduled to open its first of five eateries in the Miami area.

Then, there are Franktitude's 25 toppings — from Wasabi mayo to artichokes to banana chips. More are on tap, says CEO Ari Wurmann.

For the rest of the story:

      I'd love to try a salmon dog. Can you buy salmon franks anywhere on line ?

        I wonder why "imported salmon"?  Alaska, Washington, Oregon have some of the best salmon in the world, bar none.
         
        I think I might consider them more a sausage too.  Love to try one.

           Hey Gator I hope this thread is helpful to purchase salmon franks from A&B Famous Gefilte Fish in Patterson,N.J. I have to push myself to try one sometime.    BUDDY

                        Michael just reported this abomination; he didn't say he liked it or ate it.

                          Lots of other fascinating upscale and different hotdog variations are mentioned - I think tortilla and pita hotdogs are gonna become the rage soon - get on the bandwagon before you get sideswiped by a  smarter purveyor..

                            I've bought Salmon hot dogs at Whole Food Market here in Baton Rouge.  They're...Ok.  Prolly better at the place in Miami.  Hasn't that place  been around for a while...seems like I've seen it on Travel Channel.
