Perhaps the most incredible thing about dukkah—a popular blend of Egyptian seasonings—is its potential for variation. In this recipe, we’re garnishing crispy cod with our take on dukkah, which includes cumin, coriander, crunchy sesame seeds and za’atar (itself a blend of Middle Eastern herbs and spices). These complex flavors are complemented by a warm salad of tender carrots and red beet, marinated with shallot and lemon juice for delicious brightness.
