Spinach In Black Sesame Dressing (horenso Gomo-oe)

Recipe Description
Goma-ae, vegetables in black sesame seed dressing, is a popular Japanese salad. Unlike the mild white variety, black sesame seeds have a distinctive, rich flavor. Any seasonal vegetables, such as asparagus, mustard greens, kale, mizuna, broccoli and eggplant, go very well with this dressing.

Serves Tool

Serves To:USMetric
5 Tablespoon(T)  black sesame seeds, toasted
1 Tablespoon(T)  sugar
3 Tablespoon(T)  dashi (fish stock)
1/2 Teaspoon(t)  tamari
7 Ounce(oz)  spinach
1   yuzu citron or lime rind, julienned (garnish)


Put the toasted sesame seeds into a suribachi or other mortar, and grind them to an oily paste. Add the sugar, blending thoroughly. Add the dashi 1 tablespoon at a time, mixing until smooth. Blend in the tamari. If a suribachi is not available, blend the seeds, sugar, dashi, and tamari in a food processor or blender. The dressing can be stored in the refrigerator for 2 days, covered. In a large pot of salted boiling water, cook the spinach for about 1 minute. Drain the spinach, and cool it under cold running water. Squeeze the spinach tightly to remove excess water. Cut the spinach into 1 1/2 inch lengths. Just before serving, toss the spinach with the sesame dressing. Serve the salad garnished with yuzu citron or lime rind.
