How to prepare:

Roast the sesame seeds in a dry frying pan over low heat 3-5 minutes until golden brown. Shake the pan while roasting back and forth.

Grind the seeds very small in a pestle or a clean coffee mill.

Add some of the vegetable oil only if you can't make a smooth paste.

Mix the paste with soy sauce, sherry, sugar, dashi grains and water.

Keep the sauce for a maximum of 2 days in the fridge in an airtight box.

Use when serving Japanese teppan yaki or sukiyaki.
