Salmon Dukkah in
Blood Orange Sauce
Background: The word “dukkah” is derived from the Arabic verb "to pound" since the mixture is neither powdered nor paste-like. It has been told that weary desert travelers would gather by a small fire and roast this nutritious nut-spice combination. It’s full of protein, calcium, minerals, and fiber, and quickly replenished their energy.
Not just Spice
Dukkah is a specialty that is not strictly speaking a spice blend, but rather a blend of roasted nuts seasoned with spices. With it's pleasant crunch and scrumptious smoky taste, it transforms any simple dish into something original and extremely flavorful.

Dukkah is also excellent sprinkled over fresh salads, roasted vegetables, pasta, feta cheese, and even peaches. This spice blend is delightfully fragrant, and especially unique as a light and crunchy coating on french fries!

Dukkah makes a crunchy coating for chicken or fish when put on before pan-fying. And, better yet, coat on left-over mashed potatoes for some crunchy and creamy potato croquettes.
