Dukkah-Crusted Baked Salmon Fillets
Dukkah-crusted baked salmon fillets are quickly pulled together for a speedy mid-week meal, yet fancy enough to serve to company. The nutty dukkah flavours the fillets as the salmon bakes, and needs nothing more than some simple sides for an easy dinner.
- 4 salmon fillets approx 7oz each
- Olive oil
- 4 Tablespoons dukkah blend storebought or homemade
- I lemon cut into quarters
Pre-heat the oven to 390F (355F fan forced).
Line a baking sheet and set aside.
Rub the salmon fillets lightly with olive oil.
Sprinkle 1 Tablespoon of dukkah evenly over each salmon fillet, gently patting the dukkah onto each fillet to help it stick. I like to hold a little back and sprinkle it over the top so that it forms a crust as the fillet bakes.
Place the fillets on the baking tray.
Bake for 12 - 15 minutes, or until cooked to your liking. The fillets should be firm to the touch (not hard) when lightly pressed.
Remove from the oven, then either squeeze lemon over each fillet, or (my preference) serve the lemon quarter on the side.
