From Marcus Samuelsson - this awesome dip is super easy and a nice change up. Do not make it in a blender as the sesame seeds will turn into paste - best in a mortar and pestle or a spice grinder. Try it with olive oil to dip in bread or pita or with chicken.

Put my mortar and pestle to good work today to make this delicious, nutty-spicy seasoning. I just used it as a snack for the kids, sprinkling it onto olive-oil-brushed pita crisps. Yummy!
