    Toasted sesame oil not in Asian markets

    I have a recipie for three cup chicken that's adamant about using toasted sesame oil for best results. I went to my go to Chinese Market in my city and they don't have it. I try two more markets on the same street, small and large and all packed full of authentic items and none of them have toasted sesame oil. I scan the shelves and see sesame oil, hot sesame oil, sesame oil blends, and black sesame oil, but no toasted (I did ask store employees and owners as well)? I'm stumped! Is it perhaps called something else?

    It is an actual product. Your go to store should be able to order it for you or you could purchase it over the internet through one of the online Asian grocers or as a last resort,

    It's my understanding that most of Japanese and Chinese sesame oils sold such as Kadoya are roasted - you can tell that from the amber color. I believe it's the light, very light colored sesame oil is the one that is not roasted and harder to find.

    This is one of the most common ones sold and is roasted

    Thanks for the link with the brand name! I believe I did see this brand in my go to market, but since it didn't say "toasted" on the package I passed it up. That may be why store employees were confused by me as well! I appreciate you helping to clarify this for me.
