In addition to its culinary uses, sesame is also renowned for its nutritional benefits, as it is an excellent source of healthy fats, protein, fiber, and minerals such as calcium, iron, and magnesium. "Au sésame" can refer to dishes like crispy sesame chicken, sesame crusted fish, or even a simple garnish of toasted sesame seeds. It adds a unique, delicious flavor and texture to many savory and sweet recipes.
