Popcorn is low in calories and high in fibre, but many of the commercially available versions, including the movie theatre variety, ruin popcorn’s claim to fame as a guilt free snack by adding lots of fat and weirdo additives.
Prep 10 minutes Cook 10 minutes Total time 20 minutes
1/2 cup popping corn
3 tablespoons canola oil
zest of 3-4 limes
1/4 tsp fine sea salt (or more to taste)
freshly ground black pepper (to taste)
olive oil (in an atomizer)
You can absolutely use a bag of natural microwave popcorn rather than preparing it on the stop stovetop.
1.Add canola oil and popcorn to a large sauce pan with a tight fitting lid.
2.Over medium heat, warm the popcorn until you start to hear the first kernels pop (about 3-4 minutes).
3.As the corn pops, shake the pan frequently until the popping subsides. Remove from heat and wait 2-3 minutes until kernels stop popping.
4.Add lime zest and salt to a large bowl. Pour warm popcorn over top. Mix throughly while intermittently spraying popcorn with olive oil and sprinkling with freshly ground black pepper to taste.
Now. If you’re really looking for an indulgent treat, this recipe for caramel corn is insanely delicious.
