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
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!
