READY IN: 20mins
YIELD: 1/2 cup


  • 2
    sheets nori (Japanese seaweed)
  • 12
    cup white sesame seeds
  • 2
    teaspoons sea salt (or kosher salt-use a little less)
  • 1
    teaspoon red pepper flakes (or to taste)


  • Toast the nori by passing each sheet repeatedly over a hot burner untli it becomes crisp and the color dulls.
  • Put the sheets together and using scissors, slice them into thin strips, then into squares.

  • Cool, then store in a covered jar so they will stay crisp. Enjoy!
