Roasted or unroasted, sesame seeds can be used for a variety of culinary dishes. Their sweet, nutty flavor suits rolls, meats, pastas, and vegetables well. Many countries use the seeds to make pastes and sauces for coating and dipping. The oil from the seeds can be used to make sesame oil.
Black sesame seeds are great on a a seared sushi grade tuna and on scallops or shrimp. They are surprisingly good in making ice cream and milk shakes. They also pair well with avocado.
Use them as garnish for lighter colored foods, toasted or not or grind them up and use the paste for Asian sauces. Try them with dark chocolate, or any chocolate. This sounds unusual, but it’s delicious.
You can also make sesame butter. Grind them up and use them the same way you would use peanut butter.
