Dukkah (Egypt) is an 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.
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.
Regional Cuisine Today this warm, aromatic mixture is typically used as an interactive appetizer, becoming addictive when served as a dip with bread and olive oil. Dukkah makes a crunchy coating for chicken or fish when put on before pan-fying. It is also good sprinkled over fresh salads, roasted vegetables, pasta, feta cheese, and even peaches. This spice blend is delightfully fragrant, unique and heavenly aromatic.

Flavor and Uses
On the 2oz can of our Egyptian Dukkah, we've shared with you a recipe for Egyptian Pork.... but, Pork doesn't really "a thing" in Egypt. It's kinda funny. We know. But, we're restauranteurs, and like to use our "Artistic License" whenever possible!
So... "Let them have PORK!"
Dukkah is so much fun as a coarse blend with nuts & fragrant herbs. It's excellent with white meats, fish, bread & dressings. Sprinkle in olive oil and serve with crusty bread, or topping on a salad. Snack: bake 2-inch pieces of kale rubbed with olie oil, salt & Dukkah at 200 degrees for 30 minutes. Mix in with pâté, or dust on french fries.
