By now, you’ve probably realized there are a few things that I just ‘don’t do’ here at the Girl In The Little Red Kitchen. One of them most notably being all things spicy. I may be perpetuating stereotypes here, but this Jewish girl just can’t handle the heat. If anything requires a hot pepper in my kitchen, the non-latex gloves come out to remove all the capsaicin and even then the smallest amount possible is used. The rest goes into a bowl for my husband to add at his desire. He can handle the heat.
So when Amy from Kimchi Mom announce that this weeks #SundaySupper theme was going to “Spice Things Up!”, I was suddenly dumfounded on what to do.
Then I remembered something, I kind of sort of tolerate sriracha aka rooster sauce aka sweet chili sauce that everyone is OBSESSED WITH. We always have a bottle at home because Braden loves it. Pizza? Needs sriracha. Leftover Chinese food? Gotta have sriracha. Day old Thanksgiving dinner? Well, you get the point.
I had recently and unknowingly enjoyed some sriracha mayo while out at a local restaurant. Well, hey not so bad when you tone this down and NOW I know why everyone loves it! With my bottle in hand, I was ready to spice something up and what better to spice up than popcorn?
Forget your movie theater fake-butter drenched popcorn. This is what you want to sneak in next time. You first get the vinegar tang of the sriracha, then the heat and then the pure enjoyment of popcorn. What’s not to like?
- ½ cup popcorn kernels or 1 bag popped unflavored popcorn
- 2 tablespoons sriracha sauce
- 1 tablespoon unsalted butter, melted
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- Pop the popcorn with an air popper or on your stovetop in a large pot (directions found here).
- In a small bowl, mix together the sriracha sauce, melted butter and salt.
- In a large bowl, place half the popcorn and drizzle with half the sriracha mixture. Toss to combined.
- Top with the remaining popcorn and sauce. Toss again until the popcorn is completely covered with sriracha sauce.
- Serve immediately.
