Sesame Oil

Sesame Oil
Originally uploaded by Simply Frugal
There are two kinds of sesame oil sold. One, a light golden color, is used as you would use any cooking oil. Dark or roasted sesame oil is a flavoring ingredient that can be purchased in Asian grocery stores and in some supermarkets in the ethnic foods section. Don't try to substitute one for the other. The darker oil has a very powerful flavor.

The dark sesame oil adds its special flavor to salad dressings as well as hot dishes.
