Alan's Kitchen Tip:

  • To toast sesame seed, cook in an ungreased heavy skillet over medium heat about 2 minutes, stirring frequently until browning begins, then stirring constantly until golden brown.
  • If you have only plain rice vinegar in your cupboard, you can �season� it with a pinch of sugar and salt and use it in place of the seasoned rice vinegar listed here.
