Spicy Popcorn with Sriracha and Lime

Spicy Popcorn with Sriracha and Lime


(cooking time: 20 min; 6 servings)

  • Popcorn kernels – ½ cup
  • Canola oil – ¼ cup
  • 1 lime – zest + juice
  • Salt – 1.2 tsp
  • Unsalted butter – 1 tbsp, melted
  • Sriracha sauce – 1 tbsp


  • Add popcorn kernels into a deep pot. Top with canola oil, mix until all kernels are well coated.
  • Place over high heat and cover with a lid. Shake often to prevent popped corns from burning. Cook for about 7 minutes.
  • When the sound of popping slows down almost completely, pour hot popcorn into a large bowl. Be careful! Season with salt and lime zest.
  • In a small bowl, whisk lime juice with melted butter and sriracha. Drizzle evenly over the popcorn; toss to evenly coat.
