【What is Korean Sesame Oil (Chamgiruem)?】
Sesame oil (Chamgireum 참기름) is a light to dark brown colored oil made from sesame seeds. Sesame seeds come from the flowering plant Sesamum indicum. Sesame seeds (Cham kkage 참깨) are first roasted and grounded, then pressing it to produce oil.
【How is sesame oil used in Korean cookings?】
In Korean cuisine, it is used as part of sauce, marinade, and seasoning. While untoasted lighter oils have a very high smoke point which means it can even be used for deep frying but the darker toasted Korean sesame oils have a bit lower smoke point and is rarely used for deep frying in Korean cooking – also due to the cost. Also, the toasted oil has quite a strong flavor which may be too much for deep frying in terms of flavor. It is also used to add extra flavor and aroma as a finishing oil. If the recipe uses sesame oil as part of the seasoning, you can often drizzle a bit on top right before serving to highlight the flavor. Much like how Italians like to drizzle olive oil on pasta or other dishes right before serving.
