Egyptian Nut and Spice Blend (Dukkah)

You may have not heard of dukkah, but we love it, and we think you will, too: Toasted nuts and seeds are ground to a coarse powder that you'll want to sprinkle over just about everything. It's smoky and salty with a complex richness from the nuts.

We specifically love to use this spice blend as a crust for halibut (see the recipe). However, feel free to use it on chicken and vegetables, or even mixed into yogurt for a tangy dip.
