Recipe Notes

Untoasted or unroasted sesame oil is pressed from unroasted sesame seeds and is pale in color and mildly flavored.

It can be substituted for almost any vegetable oil.

Toasted or roasted sesame oil is made from toasted sesame seeds and is dark brown in appearance and intensely flavored.

Because it has a low smoke point, it is best reserved for marinades or for drizzling over food just prior to serving.
