Spicy Seaweed Popcorn Seasoning


Serves 5 (serving size: 1 tbsp.)

Popcorn is a versatile, blank canvas. Spice it up with a toasty umami flavor with crushed nori (dried seaweed). Sprinkle over warm popcorn for a new way to snack during your favorite movie. If you need a salty fix, this seasoning will elevate your popcorn and you’ll never want a plain potato chip again. Try adding this seasoning with dry rubs as well to bring a new level to your grilled meats.


  • 3 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • 2 (8-inch) nori sheets
