Grilled Hotdogs with Ghost Peri Peri Pineapple Salsa

Hot dogs, an iconic staple in the world of fast food, have a rich history that spans continents and cultures. Originating in Germany as sausages, they made their way to the United States, where they evolved into the classic American hot dog. But, culinary innovation knows no bounds, and today, we're taking a delicious detour to South Africa with our Grilled Hotdogs with Ghost Peri Peri Pineapple Salsa.

This unique recipe infuses the vibrant flavors of South Africa into the traditional hot dog. The star of the show is our Ghost Peri-Peri Sauce, known for its fiery heat and depth of flavor. Peri-Peri, also known as African Bird's Eye chili, is a staple in South African cuisine, celebrated for its intense heat and aromatic properties. When combined with the sweetness of pineapple, the crunch of red bell pepper, and the zestiness of lime, it creates a salsa that's both refreshing and tantalizingly spicy.


Let's delve into the ingredients that make this dish extraordinary:

Fresh Pineapple: Adds a tropical sweetness that balances the heat of the Ghost Peri-Peri Sauce.

Red Bell Pepper: Provides a crisp texture and a burst of color.

Red Onion: Adds a sharp, pungent flavor that complements the sweetness of the pineapple.

Cilantro: Introduces a hint of herbal freshness.

Lime Juice: Enhances the salsa's brightness and vibrancy.

Ghost Peri-Peri Sauce: The fiery star of the dish, offering intense heat and depth of flavor.

The Process

The process is simple yet transformative:

Prepare the Salsa: The pineapple salsa can be made ahead of time, allowing the flavors to meld together.

Grill the Hotdogs: Achieve that coveted charred exterior while maintaining a juicy interior.

Toast the Buns: For an added layer of texture and warmth.

Assemble the Hotdogs: Place the grilled hotdogs in the buns, generously top with the pineapple salsa, and drizzle extra Ghost Peri-Peri Sauce for an added kick.


This recipe is not just a meal; it's a culinary journey. Each bite offers a blend of smoky, sweet, and spicy flavors that pay homage to South African cuisine while celebrating the global love for hot dogs. Whether you're hosting a summer barbecue or simply craving something adventurous, these Grilled Hotdogs with Ghost Peri Peri Pineapple Salsa are sure to impress and delight.
