Toast sesame seeds 5 minutes in dry skillet, or until fragrant, shaking often. Set aside.
Plunge orange zest in pot of boiling water. Simmer 3 minutes, then drain.
Bring orange juice, vinegar, sesame oil, soy sauce, brown sugar, five-spice powder, star anise, and half of orange zest to a boil in skillet over medium heat.

Garnish with green onions, sesame seeds, and remaining orange zest.
