Seaweed Popcorn Recipe

Serves 4
5 minutes


Sweet and salty seaweed popcorn

  • 1 tbsp of nori seaweed flakes, preferably Clearspring Nori Sprinkle
  • 1 tbsp of black sesame seeds
  • 1 tbsp of light brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp of coconut oil
  • 75g of popcorn kernels
  • 2 tbsp of butter, optional


In a pestle and mortar, grind the nori sprinkle, 2/3 of the sesame seeds, sugar and salt to a fine powder
Melt the coconut oil in a large, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add 3 popcorn kernels, cover with a lid and cook over a medium heat until they pop
Immediately add the rest of the corn after the corn has popped, replace the lid and cook, shaking the pan occasionally until all the kernels have popped
Transfer the popped corn to a large bowl and pour over the melted butter, if using. Sprinkle over your sweet and salty nori mixture and use your hands to mix well until every piece is coated
