Sesame seeds are known as oilseeds. The plant is the oldest known species to be grown mainly for its seeds and oils rather than its leaves, fruit or vegetables and are native to Africa's sub-Saharan region. I use sesame in different forms for different dishes, such as sesame oil in kimchi fried rice, tahini with roasted smoky eggplants, or oil and toasted seeds for this ocean trout recipe. You will need to marinate the fish before cooking.

Chicken ginger egg fried rice. Leave out the garlic and use infused oil. Use only green part of spring onions. I don't bother with the omelet making step, I just chuck the beaten egg in at the end and stir well.
