Lee Kum Kee Pure Sesame Oil, 207ml


Sesame oil is a highly prized flavouring in Chinese cuisine – truly a must-have for your Chinese store cupboard. Made from roasted sesame seeds, this amber-coloured oil has a distinctive ‘nutty’ aroma and taste. Indeed, its Chinese name means ‘fragrant oil’.

Because its fragrance is volatile and quickly lost through heating, sesame oil is traditionally used in cold dressings or added to cooked dishes at the end of the cooking process, away from direct heat. Use it in salad dressings, cold sauces or in dipping sauces or add a dash to freshly stir-fried dishes. It combines well with other Chinese ingredients such as soy sauce, black Chinese vinegar or chilli oil, so enjoy creating your own combinations.

Lee Kum Kee was founded by a cook from Guangdong village who discovered oyster sauce in 1888. Known for the range and quality of its Chinese sauces, the company is now a global brand, widely used in Chinese restaurants around the world.

Ingredients: Sesame Oil. Allergens are listed in bold.
