I’m such a fan of sesame seeds. Literally, sprinkle it on almost everything. It’s is a super quick and simple way to add a ton of protein and filling fiber to your meal. Whether you sprinkle them on top or puréed into a paste. And aside from that delicious flavor, it gives every dish that little bit of extra flair.
If you’re wondering if there are any differences between the white and the black sesame seeds. Here are my thoughts.
Black sesame seeds, my personal favorite, tend to have a deep, rich and stronger aroma and a taste that’s smokier and nuttier than their white counterpart. Think a little between exceptionally dark chocolate and coffee. With a subtle note of herb and spice. You can perfectly draw those notes out with green veggies and citrus.
White sesame seeds tend to be on the sweeter side. They have the aroma of vanilla, roasted peanuts, lightly caramelized milk and honey. They match perfectly with all those things.
White sesame seeds compliment a range of fruits too, berries, for example, especially sweet ones. They are also a great finishing touch for vegetables like cauliflower.
Black seeds have their hulls intact, whereas white seeds have their hulls removed. The taste difference is very subtle though but combined with the right foods, always a success.
Serve the salmon pieces on a cushion of whole wheat (Japanese) noodles for a true power noodle bowl that leaves you nothing but satisfied.
