Egyptian Dukkah Crusted Salmon


What is Dukkah? Dukkah is a tradition blend of chopped nuts, seeds, and spice originating from Egypt. A common mixture is toasted hazelnuts, sesame, coriander seeds, and cumin. I stubbed across Dukkah while in Turkey and have often used its savory blend for quick weeknight dinners.

Full time: 30 minutes
Serves 2

You will need:

2 salmon filets, roughly 1/3 lb. each
1/4 cup hazelnuts, finely chopped
2 tbsp sesame seeds
1 tsp coriander seeds
1 tsp ground black pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp ground sea salt

Let us begin:

Preheat oven to 350

Line a baking tray with aluminum foil and place fillets on tray.

Lightly spray fillets with olive oil cooking spray.

Mix remaining ingredients in a bowl.

Coat top of fish with mixture.

Bake in oven 15-18 minutes or until desired temperature has been reached.

Plate up and serve immediately, enjoy!
