Even though I’ll be in Hawaii soon (for the Hawaii Food & Wine Festival), my schedule is so packed that I’m actually not sure I can make it to Hank’s. So last night I attempted to make the Ramen Dog at home. It was SUPER EASY and definitely a special (once-in-awhile ONLY) treat. Peter and my brother Greg loved it too!
My version of Hank’s Ramen Dog
4 skewers (soaked in water for at least 30 minutes to prevent burning). Note: I cut each skewer to fit in pan.
2 Packs of cooked ramen (no seasoning), drained and dried. You want LONG strands and it should be very sticky (and DRY).
Vegetable oil for deep frying.
Skewer each hot dog with wet, wooden skewers.
Wrap each dog with various strands of sticky, cooked, DRY ramen. Set aside on plate.
Using tongs, gently lay ramen dog into hot oil, turn if needed.
Watch until the ramen strands are golden brown and drain on paper towels.
