Recipe For Dukkah

I have never had this spice before, even though I have seen it on the shelves in various deli’s and Woolworths stores. When we went to Sofia’s my dad ordered the dukkah spiced petite poissin.  Inspired to finally make some, I went shopping for hazelnuts which sat in their brown paper bag on my kitchen counter for a week while I fought off the heat wave. As soon as I could face the heat of the kitchen I gave this recipe a go! The dukkah is great, and I used it immediately to make a dukkah encrusted piece of tuna for supper. I have bottled some to take as a thank you gift to the next person who invites us for dinner.

  2. I’ve only used it on roasted veggies, as I follow a mainly vegetarian diet when hubby’s away and it’s divine! I’ve not made it from scratch before, so beeeg thanks for posting the recipe!

  3. I think that traditionally you dip bread in olive oil and then in dukkah as a snack with drinks, there’s a wonderful Mozambican one I tried that had lemon grass and other spices in it. I’ve also had it sprinkled on roast veggies – quite a nice way to jazz them up.

  5. I bought a jar of dukkah at the GF&W Show and used it on some roasted butternut, it was delish. Then I put the jar in the cupboard and promptly forgot about it. Thanks for the reminder 🙂
