  5. Mix with a spoon or your hands until well combined.

  7. Pour the black and white sesame seeds into a cup and mix them.
  8. Sprinkle the seeds evenly over the top of the salmon loaf, pressing lightly to make the seeds adhere.
  9. Bake for20-30 minutes, or until the loaf feels springy to the touch and an instant-read thermometer measures 145° in the thickest part.

  11. If it's not spicy enough, add another 1/2 teaspoon.
