How to Fry Sesame Seeds for Sushi #10

July 11th, 2007 by sushi

Place a frying pan on the gas stove and turn the heat on medium. You will have to wait until the frying pan gets warm. Then, place sesame seed on the warm frying pan (do not use oil). Use a paddle to mix sesame seeds or just lift the frying pan and shake it a bit, in a few minutes you will notices that seeds are changing in color to light brown.

The process is quite fast so stay by the pan.

Don’t burn the seeds. Use a paddle to spread the seeds or slowly shake the frying pan every few seconds.

Now sesame seeds are ready.

Place the seeds in the plate and you are ready to cover the California rolls.

I have come across two kinds of sesame seeds. One that I usually use is shown on the picture. As you can see seeds have smooth body and whitish look. The second type, I got from a friend, a big japanese plastic bag of sesame seeds. They looked a bit rough, had a body of a drop and looked greyish. I have used both for sushi and both types taste a bit different. Thus, I think that the one that I show here on pictures suits much better for sushi.

    Usually, I heat up the oven then turn it off. I place the sesame on a plate, make sure spread them out evenly. Then just put it in the oven for 5 minutes. The heat will roast it slowly and give it nice flavour.
