Dukkah is an Egyptian condiment that is a mixture of herbs, nuts (usually hazelnut), and spices. The word is derived from the Arabic for "to pound” since the mixture of spices and nuts are pounded together after being dry roasted to a texture that is neither powdered nor paste-like. This texture makes it perfect for dusting fish and bringing a new and delicious flavour to our locally caught fish. #youplateit

Pat dry the fish with paper towel. Add the dukkah to a large bowl. Drizzle olive oil over the fish, using your fingers, spread the oil over the fillet evenly. Add the fillet to the bowl of dukkah, then press firmly to get the dukkah to stick into the flesh. Add crumbed fish onto another lined baking tray and set aside.
