Kadoya sesame oil is made by cold-pressing whole white sesame seeds that have been specially roasted. It has a rich sesame aroma and deep nutty flavor due to the long roasting process. Sesame oil is ubiquitous in Asian cooking as a finishing oil, ingredient, and accent. Taihaku sesame oil is a variant that is made using unprocessed raw white sesame.
Uses: Top steamed or blanched green vegetables with a drizzle of sesame oil and oyster sauce. Mix sesame oil into soy sauce and black vinegar for a delicious dip. Mix it into your other favorite sauces to add complex undertones. Use a blend of sesame oil for deep frying to make tastier fried foods.
