Popcorn is a staple at our house. While butter and salt are great, I had an idea to use a blend similar to a spice rub that I mix for chicken. This same blend is also great on oven-baked potato fries. I was going for the yin and yang of salty and sweet with a touch of heat. I hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Don't be surprised if you end up licking your fingers.
|BBQ popcorn- our latest addiction.|
I pop ½ cup of popcorn with 3 Tbsp coconut oil, and use the following amounts to top it; adjust according to how much popcorn you will be popping, and to taste.
• 2 tsp raw sugar (for a deeper flavor, try brown sugar or maple sugar)
• 1 tsp lime zest salt (if you don't have any on hand, substitute a finely ground sea salt)
• 1¼ tsp smoked paprika
• ¼ tsp garlic powder
