3 ways to use dukkah
April 8, 2019 Centuries Ahead

Dukkah (pronounced DOO-kah) is a traditional Egyptian creation which is sure to spice up your life. The seasoning is a mixture of herbs, spices and seeds (some variations also include nuts – ours is nut-free). It adds a whole bunch of flavour plus some added texture to many dishes.

Dukkah can be used for breakfast, lunch and dinner, making it a particularly fun and versatile addition to your pantry. We reckon once you’ve tried it, it will live right next to your salt and pepper – ready to whip out at a moment’s notice.

You can sprinkle dukkah on just about anything, from roast potatoes to scrambled eggs and it can even be used to rub on or coat meat and fish. Take your hummus to the next level with a dash of dukkah, and sprinkle over your curry for a crunchy texture. Perk up a boring salad with a shake of dukkah or use it to amp up your next dinner party starter.

But, wait there’s more!

Here are 3 more simple ways you can use dukkah:

Keep it simple: Dukkah olive oil and sourdough

What you need:

Bake your own sourdough, or cheat by placing a storebought loaf in the oven for a few minutes to heat through. Serve with bowls of olive and dukkah. Dunk a chunk of sourdough in the oil and follow it up with a dip in the dukkah. Eat and enjoy!

Next level: Avocado toast

What you need:

Toast thick slices of rye under the grill on in a griddle pan. Top toast with smashed avo, a drizzle of lemon juice, chopped sundried tomatoes, ripped basil and a sprinkling of dukkah.

You could go further and add greens, or feta or even a perfectly cooked poached egg (add more dukkah on top!).

Dinner done and dusted: Dukkah crusted salmon

What you need:

Put your dukkah in a shallow dish and evenly coat your salmon portions. Make sure you press the dukkah in firmly.

Heat a non-stick pan to medium heat. Coat with oil and cook the salmon skin side down for 3 minutes. Flip and cook for a further 3 minutes.

Serve with salad or veggies.

P.S. You could also crust chicken or lamb in dukkah for a scrumptious and easy weeknight dinner.

Dukkah with Himalayan Pink Salt




Pepitas, Sunflower Seeds, Sesame Seeds, Linseed, Coriander Seeds, Cumin Seeds, Himalayan Pink Salt (2.8%), Black Pepper.

Contains Sesame


Dukkah is an ancient Egyptian blend of seeds, herbs, spices and nuts that is traditionally served with olive oil and fresh bread.

Our take on this delicious blend is a little different from most you will find on your supermarket shelves. We have left the nuts out to be a bit more inclusive of those with nut allergies (but feel free to add your own). Centuries Ahead Dukkah contains pepitas, sunflower seeds, sesame, linseed, coriander seed, cumin seed, Himalayan pink salt and black pepper.

It has a delightful savory flavour with slight hints of salt and pepper that is absolutely amazing when sprinkled over avocado slices on toast.
