Sesame Seeds - Information and Spice Variations

Sesame seeds give a great nutty flavor to salads, stir-fries, and slaws. They are useful to decorate or garnish most Asian dishes, and make a beautiful crust on lightly seared meats and fish filets. If you make your own bread, sesame seeds are an excellent topping. Use a combination of white and black sesame for an aesthetically pleasing presentation.

White, hulled seeds are useful as an ingredient in recipes. Toasted seeds are convenient as a topping or garnish. Black seeds are a slightly stronger flavor, and look gorgeous in most dishes. Store all sesame seeds in the refrigerator to keep oils from becoming rancid.
