Hello Kitty Hot Dogs

Daniel Wright tops these inspired hot dogs with wasabi mayo and a ponzu-spiked cabbage and carrot slaw. Cutting a cross pattern into the ends of the dogs helps them get crispy.

  1. 1 1/2 tablespoons wasabi powder
  2. 1 tablespoon water
  3. 1/4 cup plus 2 tablespoons mayonnaise
  4. 1 1/2 teaspoons sugar
  5. 8 cups shredded cabbage, preferably a mixture of green and red
  6. 1 small carrot, shredded
  7. 1 1/2 tablespoons ponzu (Japanese citrus-soy sauce)
  8. Salt
  9. 6 all-beef hot dogs
  10. 6 brioche hot dog buns, split
  11. 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds
  1. In a medium bowl, whisk the wasabi powder with the water, then whisk in the mayonnaise and sugar.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together the cabbage, carrot and ponzu. Add 1/4 cup of the wasabi mayo and toss to coat. Season the slaw with salt.
  3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Cut a cross pattern into the ends of each hot dog. Grill over moderately high heat until lightly charred all over, about 4 minutes. Place a hot dog in each bun and top each with 1 teaspoon of the remaining wasabi mayonnaise. Spoon about 1 cup of slaw onto each hot dog, sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve.
