1/8 cup sesame oil
1 1/2 cups unflavored bread crumbs
1/8 teaspoon salt

1/8 teaspoon dry mustard
1/8 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 cup SPLENDA® Brown Sugar Blend

Combine the raw sesame seeds with the 1/8 cup of sesame oil and microwave for 2 minutes.

Heat a large frying pan or wok with the 1/4 cup of sesame oil and the vegetable oil.
