Hot popped popcorn tossed in an even hotter Sriracha sauce and punctuated with sesame seeds. A tasty snack with a punch!
1 1/2 Tablespoons Butter
1 Tablespoon Olive Oil
1 Tablespoon Sriracha Sauce
1 teaspoon Sesame Seeds - more for garnish
1 teaspoon Garlic Powder
4 cups Popped Popcorn
Salt to Taste
*1/2 Teaspoon Ginger
Step 1: Pop the Popcorn
Pop the popcorn however you'd like. I use a 70's style hot air popper, but plain, unsalted microwave popcorn or stoved popped corn will do the trick just as well!
Step 2: Melt and Combine
Melt the butter, olive oil in a small sauce pan. While it's melting add the Sriracha sauce. As soon as they are combined, stir in the sesame seeds, garlic powder and if you like, the ground ginger*. Mix well.
*I normally like ginger with these flavors however, to me, it overpowered the taste, but give it a try and see what you think!
Step 3: Toss and Enjoy
Pour over the mixture over the popcorn and toss to coat well. Season with salt and extra sesame seeds, to taste.
Enjoy...but keep a refreshing drink on hand!
Quick Tip - Dairy or sugar cuts the effect of spicy foods. While you wouldn't want sour cream on your popcorn you could have a glass of milk or slice of cheese handy if things get too hot!
