Ingredients

  • 4 oz. 110 g butter, at room temperature
  • 2 tbsp 2 tbsp sesame oil
  • 1 tsp 1 tsp sea salt
  • ¼ tsp ¼ tsp chili flakes
  • 2 tsp 2 tsp (6 g) sesame seeds, toasted

Instructions

Instructions are for 4 servings. Please modify as needed.

  1. Start by adding sesame seeds to a dry, hot pan and roast them for a couple of minutes while stirring the entire time; be careful not to burn them. Once they are golden brown and start popping, they are done. Transfer immediately to a plate or shallow bowl and set aside.
  2. Mix butter, sesame oil, chili flakes and salt in a small bowl. Place in the fridge for 15 minutes or more.
  3. Shape the butter mixture into balls the size of walnuts, approximately half an ounce (15 g or 1 Tbsp) each. Roll each ball in the toasted sesame seeds. Store in the fridge or freezer.

Tip!

Make a big batch and store in the freezer! Alternative flavors are ginger, wasabi, coriander and curry.

    What’s the alternative for sesame oil ? Can we use coconut oil instead ?

    I would suggest reducing the salt. I followed the recipe and it came out super salty! Other than that, they were delicious!

    2 tsp of sesame seeds is only sufficient to coat 1 ball, the amount should be quadrupled. Also, I found these very annoying to form, the oil makes the butter melt much faster than normal as you handle it. If I make them again I might try freezing the mixture first. I agree about the salt. I used salted butter and just a little pinch of additional salt. Perhaps the recipe needs to specify if the butter is meant to be unsalted.
