Dukkah (dook-ah), also know as Dugga, is a delicious blend of nuts, seeds, and spices. It is based on a traditional Middle Eastern recipe. I first discovered this great mixture while on vacation in Western Australia (WA). It has become a popular seasoning in Australia and can easily be purchased there. But why buy it when you can easily make your own? What is great about making dukkah, is that your can add and subtract ingredients to please yourself and family. You can use any excess Dukkah to coat chicken or seafood before baking, and also sprinkle on salads or vegetables. Let your imagination be your guide!
The traditional way to serve Dukkah is with extra-virgin oil and bread. First you dunk a piece of bread in the olive oil and then in the Dukkah. I served this at a large wine tasting party, and it was a big hit!
