Cajun Popcorn




Perfect Popcorn

  • 1/2 cup popcorn kernels

  • 1/2 tsp fine salt

  • 3 Tbsp canola oil

  • 3 Tbsp butter

Cajun Seasoning

  • 1 tsp lemon zest (about ½ lemon)

  • 2 tsp lemon juice (about ½ lemon)

  • 1 tsp paprika

  • ½ tsp onion powder

  • ½ tsp garlic powder

  • ¼ tsp cayenne powder


  1. Add popcorn kernels, salt, and oil to a 4-quart (or larger) pan. Cover with a not-too-tight lid so steam can escape.

  2. Place pan over a high flame and wait for kernels to begin popping.

  3. When kernels begin to pop, move pan back and forth just above flame to avoid burning. Continue shaking pan until popping almost stops.

  4. Turn off heat, stir in any salt that accumulated on the side of the pan, and transfer popcorn to a bowl.

  5. Add 3 Tbsp butter to the warmed pan to melt, then drizzle over the popcorn. Toss to mix*
    *Do not mix with hands, as butter will still be hot! Use a spoon or spatula.

  6. Mix Cajun Seasoning ingredients except for lemon juice in a separate bowl and then sprinkle over popcorn.
    Toss to mix.

  7. Drizzle lemon juice over popcorn last. Toss again to mix and serve. Enjoy!
