Kikkoman’s toasted sesame oil is an essential ingredient in Chinese, Japanese and Southeast Asian cuisines which adds nutty and rich flavour to sauces, marinades and stir fries.
Sesame oil is a base ingredient of teriyaki dishes. It’s nutty flavour complements the rich, umami flavours of soy and mirin in this sticky, savoury sauce for meat, vegetables or noodles. Its aromatic and deep flavour also beautifully pairs against other bold Japanese ingredients - roast aubergine in a sesame oil and miso glaze or combine with tamarind for a tangy contrast.
Kikkoman’s story begins with the Mogi family in the 17th century. They began producing soy sauce in the town of Noda, on the banks of the River Edo. Dutch traders brought the soy sauce to Europe, where it took the World Expos by storm in Vienna and Amsterdam in the late 19th century. Today, this official supplier of soy sauce to the Japanese imperial court still uses natural brewing methods and is now a popular choice all over the world.
The name Kikkoman derives from the Japanese words ‘kikko’ meaning turtle shell and ‘man’ which is the number 10,000. This comes from a Japanese legend where turtles are symbolic of longevity – the legend says they live for 10,000 years – success and happiness, qualities that the company also strives to embody.
This oil is intended as a seasoning to add flavour and not as a cooking oil. And as it has a slightly lower smoke point, it’s not suitable for deep-frying.
