  • 1/3 cup corn kernels
  • 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons sriracha
  • 1 tablespoon unsalted butter
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame seeds
  • 1 tablespoon toasted sesame oil


  • Combine the kernels and coconut oil and place them in a brown paper bag. Fold the top down a few times so it’s secure, then microwave for 2 minutes to 2.5 minutes, or until the kernels are popped. Open the bag and pour the kernels in a large bowl to cool slightly.
  • In a bowl, whisk together the sugar, sriracha and butter. Place in the microwave for 20 seconds, then remove and whisk well to combine. Drizzle the mixture over the popcorn in layers – I like to drizzle, then toss well, drizzle, then toss well, until all the sriracha is used and the popcorn is coated. Sprinkle the sesame seeds on and drizzle the toasted sesame oil with one more toss. Serve!
