Fried Egg Tacos with Dukka
Makes 4 servings.
- For the dukka:
- 1⁄4 cup raw hazelnuts
- 1⁄4 cup whole, raw almonds
- 1⁄4 cup shelled raw pistachios
- 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
- 1 tablespoon coriander seeds
- 2 teaspoons cumin seeds
- Kosher salt and freshly cracked pepper
- For the salad:
- 1 tablespoon tahini
- 1 tablespoon lemon juice
- 2 tablespoons water
- 1 tablespoon plain Greek yogurt
- 1 small clove garlic finely minced
- 1 teaspoon lemon zest
- 4 cups baby arugula
- Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
- For the tacos:
- 2 tablespoons olive (plus two teaspoons extra)
- 8 large eggs
- Kosher Salt
- 8 (6-inch) corn or flour tortillas, warmed
- To make the dukka: Set a medium skillet over medium heat. Add the hazelnuts, almonds, and pistachios. Cook, shaking pan occasionally, until nuts are toasted and fragrant, about 2 to 3 minutes. Once cool, coarsely chop and transfer to a medium bowl.
- In the same skillet, toast the sesame seeds in the same way, cooking about 1 minute. Transfer to the bowl with the nuts.
- To the same skillet, add the coriander and cumin seeds and cook, shaking the pan often, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Transfer coriander and cumin to a mortar and pestle or spice grinder. Once cool, crush or process. Add to the bowl. Toss everything together.
- To make the salad: In a small bowl, whisk together the tahini, lemon juice, yogurt, and lemon zest. Season to taste with salt and black pepper. Add the arugula then toss to combine just before serving.
- To fry the eggs: Set the non-stick skillet back over medium heat, add 1 to 2 teaspoons oil, and, once hot, add 1 or 2 cracked eggs. Season with salt to taste. Cook 2 minutes, cover with foil, and cook an additional 2 to 3 minutes, or until desired doneness. Repeat with remaining eggs.
- To make the tacos: Serve dressed salad in warmed tortillas topped with fried eggs and dukka.
KITCHEN TIP: No mortar and pestle and no spice grinder? No problem! Place seeds in a sturdy plastic bag, such as a freezer bag. Using a rolling pin or meat mallet or pan, crush the seeds.
SAVING TIP: Save extra dukka to use as a topping for salad, toast, or fish or mix it into hummus. Store it in an air-tight container in the fridge and use within 1 week.
Super Simple Homemade Guacamole
COOKING TIP: If you like things spicy, don’t remove the membranes or seeds before chopping the jalapeño!
SERVING TIP: I love this guacamole served with tortilla chips, but it’s also a fabulous dip for veggies!
- 1 large avocado ripe
- 2 tablespoons white onion minced
- 1 jalapeño finely minced
- 1 tablespoon lime juice fresh
- 1⁄4 cup cilantro lightly packed, roughly chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon Kosher Salt
- Scoop out the avocado and place in a medium bowl. Mash with the back of a fork, then add the onion, jalapeño, lime juice, salt, and cilantro. Stir to combine. Enjoy immediately.
