Looking for a new spin on the classic grilled dog? You have to try my sweet chili shrimp and scallops hot dog! BBQ season is in full swing in our home! From hamburgers to hot dogs to grilled chicken or pork chops, we tried it all multiple times. So I am trying to come up with new easy dinner recipes to avoid the dreaded sentence: not that dish again?

It’s hard to be creative during BBQ season, isn’t it? But then Pinterest comes to the rescue, and I saw some mouthwatering BBQ meals such as shrimp hot dogs! I had never had one before and was curious to try it! I have to admit that I am not a huge hot dog fan like my kids but the idea to swap a sausage with shrimps was very appealing. As you already know, I am a huge seafood fan! Of course, I had to add my spin to the dish: I added some scallops and a yummy Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce! Totally delicious! Let’s see how you can make this mouthwatering dinner in no time! 

Sweet Chilli Shrimp and Scallops Hot Dog recipe

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup of cooked shrimps. I used frozen ones that I thawed the night before.
  • 1/2 cup of cooked scallops.
  • 1 tomato diced
  • 1 celery stick diced
  • 1/4 cup of Blue Dragon Blue Dragon Sweet Chilli Dipping Sauce
  • Hot dog bun. I chose one topped with sesame and large enough.
  • Bamboo skewers

Make them

The shrimp hot dog recipes I stumbled upon required to puree half of the shrimps. I did not want that for two reasons: I wanted to feel the whole shrimp in my mouth and I did not want to add an extra step to my meal preparation. Remember, I am always looking for easy dinner ideas: they have to be ready within 30 minutes! Here’s how I made mine.

  • Thread the shrimps in the bamboo sticks. Do the same for the vegetables and the scallops.
  • Coat the vegetables and the seafood with the delicious sweet chilli dipping sauce.
  • BBQ for few minutes. Make sure to turn. The seafood is already cooked. You only need to sizzle it.
  • Heat the hot dog bun
  • Coat inside the bun with the sauce. I did not want to add any other toppings such as mayonnaise. I wanted a pure and delicious Asian flavour in my shrimp and scallop hot dog.
  • Then fill the bun with the seafood and vegetables.

And oh my, this shrimp and scallops hot dog recipe is heaven to the taste buds! The combination of the delicious sauce, seafood and crunchiness of the celery adds is delightful! The sauce is spicy enough to season the season but not too spicy for little ones! Just what you need to have a nice Asian flavour! Besides the tomatoes will add some juice to the bun, which is perfect.

Of course, I had to make extra skewers for my little ones because they love seafood so much that they could not wait to grab some from the skewers! They even dipped them in the sauce! My teen added extra sauce to his hot dog! He likes spicy and couldn’t enough of it!

    This is really interesting. Hot dogs along with seafood would not be a combination that would strike me to make without this inspiration.

  2. We love grilling this time of year (well, all year actually). But it can get tiresome grilling the same things over and over. Love your take on a hot dog with shrimp.

  3. My mouth is watering – I think that sauce would taste good on so many things! Love shrimp, especially in the summer, not sure why 🙂
