The Perfect Oscars Snack

Posted: Feb 21 2013

I would love to be one of those people who throws Oscars parties. I have visions of delicate finger foods, Oscar nominee inspired dishes and pastel-tinted sparkling drinks as my spread. But who are we kidding here? I'll probably get some take out from the local Thai restaurant and plop myself in front of the TV this Sunday. 

However, I will attempt to make the perfect Oscar snack, Popcorn! 

Here is one of my favorite popcorn recipes from Buzzfeed

Sriracha, Lime and Sesame Popcorn

10 cups popped popcorn (or one 3-oz. bag plain microwave popcorn, popped)
3 Tbsp. butter
2 Tbsp. Sriracha
1 tsp sesame oil
1 Tbsp. sesame seeds
1 Tbsp. finely grated lime zest
Salt to taste


Pop some microwave popcorn and put it aside in a big bowl. 

In a small saucepan, whisk together the butter and Sriracha sauce over medium heat until the butter melts. If you're super lazy like me, you can do this in a microwave safe bowl. 

Remove from heat and stir in the sesame oil, sesame seeds and lime zest. Pour over the popcorn, add salt to taste, toss popcorn, devour popcorn. It's that simple! 

Here are 4 more popcorn recipes from Buzzfeed ranging from Maple bacon popcorn to S'mores popcorn.
