Dukkah-Crusted Salmon

Spice up simple salmon fillets with a dusting of dukkah, a Middle Eastern spice and nut mixture commonly used as a dip in Egyptian cooking.

What to buy: If you have the time, you can make your own dukkah. Otherwise look for it at gourmet grocery stores, Middle Eastern stores, or online at Spice Bazaar or Juliet Mae.

This recipe was featured as part of our Supercharge with Superfoods and Easy Weeknight Dinners photo galleries.

For more easy salmon recipes, we also recommend our maple mustard salmon. And see our guide to types of salmon for more on the different varieties of the fish.
