Fast and Easy Recipe for Savory Popcorn

Ingredients

  1. 1/8 teaspoon crushed red-pepper flakes
    1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
    1/2 teaspoon coriander seeds
    3/4 teaspoon garlic powder
    1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
    1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
    1 tablespoon vegetable oil
    1/2 cup popcorn kernels
    1/4 cup fresh lime juice
    6 tablespoons unsalted butter
    coarse salt

Directions

  1. Place pepper flakes, cumin, and coriander in a spice grinder; grind until fine. Transfer to a small bowl, and stir in garlic powder, pepper, and mustard until combined. Set aside.
  2. Heat a 4-quart pot over medium-high heat, and add oil. When oil is hot, pour in popcorn kernels. Cover, and keep pan over heat until first kernel pops. Shake pan gently, close to burner; continue shaking until kernels stop popping, 4 to 5 minutes.
  3. Bring lime juice to a boil in a small skillet over medium heat. Reduce heat; cook until liquid is reduced to 1/2 tablespoon. Add butter, and swirl to melt; add spice mixture. Drizzle over popcorn while stirring to coat evenly. Season with salt, and toss. This popcorn is best eaten the day it is prepared.

Makes 1 gallon.
