TIP: How to Toast Sesame seeds To toast your sesame seeds either place them in a toaster oven on "Toast" for a few minutes, or place them in a dry frying pan on medium heat. Keep a close eye on them as they can quickly go from toasted to burnt. I used brown sesame seeds and took them out of the pan as soon as I heard them start to make a popping sound. Don't leave them on a hot pan or they will continue to toast and may burn!
TIP: How to Wash Fish Don't like "fishy" tasting fish? No matter how fresh your fish is when you buy it, washing your fish will always make it taste even fresher, and less "fishy"!
In a medium bowl place 3 cups cold water, 1 tsp salt, 2 tsp white vinegar, and 1/2 of a fresh lime (squeezed out then placed in the water too). Gently place your fish in the liquid and lightly wash it for 10 seconds. Drain, then refill the bowl with clean cold water to rinse it off. Gently remove the fish and pat dry with paper towels. Your fresh fish is now ready to season!
