Homemade Pylsur Recipe

Back in June and July, we were on holidays in Iceland. A wonderful country, full of amazing landscapes and people. Also full of amazing food... Among it, the pylsur (or pylsa). It is a type of hot-dog, unique to Iceland and for me, it is the best hot-dog I have ever eaten.

Back at home I missed its taste, and (as the Wikipedia entry has the list of ingredients) tried to roll my own.

What you will need
  • Hot dog buns
  • Hot dog (preferably a boiled Scandinavian type)
  • Dried onion
  • Finely chopped fresh onion
  • Ketchup
  • Sweet mustard
  • Mayonnaise (or remolaði/remoulade if you can find it)
  • Powdered curry
  • Tablespoon olive oil (optional)
I don't put quantities in this ingredients list, because you should already know it it one hot-dog for each bun and a little of everything in all of them.

The preparation is easy, as you may already guess. Mix three tablespoons mayonnaise with a teaspoon curry and the olive oil, mix well. This makes for a remolaði substitute (although the original is better, if you can find remolaði/remoulade go for it!). Heat your hot dogs and remove a little bread from the inside of the buns to make place for the chopped onion and dried onion. Add ketchup, sweet mustard to and mayonnaise with curry to taste.

This is not as good as a real pylsur from Bæjarins Beztu Pylsur but it is a very good appetizer. I hope you enjoy it, and remember to ask for "eina með öllu" (one with everything).
