Sesame oil recipes

Sesame oil

Sesame seed oil is derived from sesame seeds. It's one of the most distinctive, fragrant and flavourful oils you'll find, with a slightly sweet, nutty flavour that's enhanced by toasting the seeds. Sesame seed oil is essential in oriental dishes: don't use it for frying - instead, sprinkle it sparingly over the food just before serving.
