FOR THE GARNISH:

Put the egg white in a saucer, the pistachio nuts in another saucer & the sesame seeds in a third saucer.

Dip each of the shaped disks in the egg white, then in the pistachios ON ONE SIDE ONLY & then in the toasted sesame seeds on the other side, making sure you coat them well with the seeds.

Arrange the coated disks, pistachio side down, on the prepared baking sheet.
