This delicious, fragrant salt and pepper blend is wonderful on plainly grilled shellfish and poultry.

Good with:
Seafood: any fish or shellfish
Poultry: chicken, turkey, game hen
Meat: lamb, pork, veal



    • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
    • 2 tablespoons cracked Szechwan pepper
    • 2 tablespoons kosher salt
    • 2 teaspoons cracked black pepper
    • 1 teaspoon ground ginger


Heat a small, heavy skillet over high heat for 1 minute. Add the sesame seeds and stir until the seeds start to pop. Remove from the heat and add the cracked Szechwan pepper; stir until aromatic. Add the salt, black pepper, and ginger.
