  • 3 Tbsp. sesame seeds
  • 1 tsp. sea salt


  • Toast the sesame seeds in a heavy skillet over medium heat until they’re light brown and aromatic. Stir frequently to prevent the seeds from burning. Set aside to cool.
  • Add the salt to the toasted sesame seeds and mix well. Grind with a mortar and pestle or in a spice grinder until the seeds crack open; the mixture will be a coarse grind.
