Dukkah is a fragrant seasoning made from nuts and spices.  It’s the perfect way to add delicious and natural flavor to a wide range of foods.  I use it to season everything from lamb or fish or chicken, I even sprinkle it over salads or dips or a fresh avocado with olive oil as a snack.  There really is no reason to use bottled, processed sauces to add flavour to your food with recipes like this.  Whip up a batch and keep it on hand in your pantry.


What you’ll need… 

  • 1 cup hazelnuts
  • ½ cup almonds
  • ½ cup pistachios or macadamia nuts
  • 2 Tbsp. white sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp. coriander seeds
  • 1 tsp. cumin seeds
  • 1tsp. fennel seeds
  • 1 Tbsp. black peppercorns
  • 1 t.sp Himalayan or Celtic sea salt

How to make… 

  • Dry roast coriander, fennel and cumin seeds in a heavy based fry pan or skillet, over medium heat, until fragrant –  about 2 minutes.
  • Place in a mortar and pestle and pound together with the peppercorns until pulverized (or place in a coffee grinder, or food processor).
  • Dry roast the nuts (using no oil) over medium heat in a fry pan or skillet, until fragrant –  about 8 -10 minutes (watch them carefully so that they don’t burn). Place on a plate to cool.
  • When cool enough to handle place in a food processor and grind until finely chopped, but still a little chunky.
  • In the same fry pan or skillet, roast sesame seeds until fragrant and they begin to pop –  about 2 minutes.  Allow to cool slightly.
  • Transfer the  sesame seeds to a bowl with the nuts and spices, along with the salt. Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary. Store in an airtight glass container for up to one month.

Serves – Makes around 2 cups of dukkah
