Pan-seared salmon salad with cucumbers and peppery black radishes, tamed by a tangy + creamy lemon-crème fraîche dressing, finished with a sprinkle of scallions, lemon zest and toasted @thespicehouse nigella seeds #sponsored. Find the full recipe in the comments section!
Nigella seeds (also known as charnushka, black caraway or kalonji seeds) are an excellent addition of flavor and texture to any salads, savory toasts, tagines and stews. They may be mistaken for sesame seeds but have a completely different flavor profile. Toast them in a dry pan on med-low for about 3-5 min. to bring out their earthy, cumin-y, oniony and black peppery notes.
