DIRECTIONS

  • The crust- Place the sesame seeds and spices in a pestle and mortar or spice grinder and lightly crush.
  • Mix with the oil, lemon zest and juice and season to taste.
  • Rub the mixture all over the food, cover and marinate for 4 hours or overnight in the fridge for meats and poultry. Fish needs only 30 minutes. Allow the food to return to room temperature for 20 minutes before cooking.
  • To cook- If barbecuing, turn frequently and baste with any excess marinade. To roast a whole chicken, rub all over and roast at 400F for 1–1½ hours.
