This Furikake Popcorn is anything but bland. It’s all crunchy, savory, sweet, salty, and umami-licious!
One of the many things that keeps us sane at home is watching a movie specially now that Ykaie is already on her Summer vacation. We do movie nights, movie afternoons, and movie mornings.. Yep, that’s how we roll…LOL!
When we do watch a movie, there has to be movie food. Sometimes it’s chips and dip, chocolates, coffee, ice cream but most of the time there’s popcorn.
When I’m lazy, I just pop the popcorn in the microwave and let it be. When I’m not, I make cool flavors like Kool-Aid Popcorn, Truffle Bacon Popcorn, and Sriracha Popcorn.
Last week, we watched Star Wars: The Force Awakens and guess what flavor our popcorn is? You guessed it right Furikake Popcorn.
Furikake is is a dry, savory, Japanese seasoning meant to be sprinkled on top of cooked rice, vegetables, and fish. It typically consists of a mixture of dried and ground fish, sesame seeds, chopped seaweed, sugar, and salt. And it tickles your tatebuds meant for sweet, salty, and umami.
I love Furikake and it’s what I used when I made this Spam Musubi. It does wonders for popcorns as well…
What have we been up to today? peanutbutter♥ and I went on a coffee date in BGC. After that, we went on a tea date together with 15 more bloggers…LOL!
Just kidding, peanutbutter♥ accompanied me to the launching of CBTL’s Summer Drinks. That’s a different story, of course. I’ll tell you all about it on a different post.
I still have several packets of furikake and I leave it all up to my imagination on what to do with them in the coming days…Print
- 1 bag popped butter or unflavored popcorn
- 1 tbsp melted butter
- 3 tbsp furikake (or more if desired)
- Put popcorn in a large bowl and drizzle with melted butter. Toss to combine.
- Sprinkle with furikake and toss again. The furikake will stick to the wet popcorn.
- Serve immediately.
Love popcorn! Never even thought of flavoring it with furikake, though. Fun idea! Thanks.
Where did you buy your furikake? Let me know please
You can buy it on most supermarkets and Japanese stores.
How interesting! I don’t think I’ve ever tried this flavor before, but I’d certainly be open to it.
My family loves popcorn too – in just about any flavor, at just about any time. We’ve even been known to eat so much popcorn that we skip meals for it.
You’re so right about needing to have food on movie night. And I love popcorn variations!
That looks delicious. I love popcorn. I’ll have to try this.
Sounds good, I may give it a try. I usually add sharp cheddar seasoning on my popcorn.
I’ve never heard of this before but I love popcorn and I love trying new things so THANK YOU for getting me out of my comfort zone one more time!
