Take two small dip bowls. Put a few tablespoons of dukkah into one and a few tablespoons of good quality, fresh extra virgin olive oil in the other. In another larger bowl put some chunks of crusty bread.
Simply serve and dip your bread into the oil, then into the dukkah and pop into your mouth. This is very moreish and is great when served with pre-dinner drinks or at a picnic. Much healthier and more interesting than chips!
Encrusted chicken or fish
Take a chicken breast and cut into strips 2 inches wide. Lightly spray with olive oil. Take one tablespoon of your favourite dukkah and mix with two tablespoons of breadcrumbs in a small freezer/plastic bag.
Drop the strips of chicken into the bag and give the bag a good shake. Now remove beautifully coated chicken, place on a lightly greased baking tray and cook for 12 mins either side at 180 degrees or alternatively cook on the hotplate of the barbie.
And herb topping
Mix one part dukkah, one part freshly chopped herbs (parsley, coriander etc) and enough freshly squeezed lemon juice to make it stick together. Cook one side of your chicken, fish etc and turn over.
Place dukkah topping on top and continue to cook until done. This is so delicious and so easy.
Liven up your meals
Simply sprinkle dukkah onto your salad, soup, potatoes, cauliflower cheese, couscous or rice to give it a whole new angle.
