  • 3 tablespoons white sesame seeds lightly toasted
  • 3 tablespoons black sesame seeds lightly toasted
  • 2 tablespoons poppy seeds
  • 2 tablespoons onion dried minced
  • 2 tablespoons garlic dried minced
  • 2 tablespoons coarse sea salt


  • In a small, dry (no added oil) skillet, on medium-low heat, add the white and black sesame seeds. While constantly moving the seeds around, toast the seeds for 1 to 2 minutes being careful not to burn them.
    Pro Tip: You can skip the toasting of your sesame seeds if you want. Toasting the seeds adds a great flavor but can be omitted and the seasoning blend will still be tasty.
  • Add the toasted sesame seeds to a small bowl.
    Pro Tip: You can use a 2 cup glass measure cup with a pour spout to mix this seasoning blend in. This makes it easier to pour into your storage container (½ pint mason jar) after you mix the spices together. 
  • Add the poppy seeds, onion, garlic, and sea salt to the bowl with the sesame seeds. Mix well.
    Pro Tip: You can substitute coarse kosher salt for the coarse sea salt if you are unable to find the sea salt in your local grocer. 
  • Transfer the seasoning blend to a jar with a tight fitting lid.


  • This seasoning blend can easily be halved or doubled according to your needs.
