Dukkah is an Egyptian spice mix that varies in its make up but usually includes cumin, coriander, sesame seeds and black pepper. This recipe is adapted for use with kid goat chops which are delicate in flavour and therefore shouldn’t be overpowered by strong spices.

The fresh vegetables and citrus in the light cous-cous salad complement the kid and make this a healthy dish, especially considering that kid goat is very lean and low in cholesterol.

This recipe uses my Kid Goat Stock but you can use chicken or vegetable stock as an alternative.
