Popcorn with Togarashi Spice

Popcorn with Togarashi Spice

Pop in some tasty popcorn with a unique Japanese-style togarashi spice, and let the tiny explosions of chili flavor satisfy your taste buds' cravings. A perfect combo snack to munch with your favorite movie.

  • 1/3 cup of corn kernels
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon of butter, melted
  • 1 teaspoon of togarashi
  • 1 tablespoon of honey, warmed


  1. Add the olive oil to a large sauce pot and heat over high heat. Stir in the corn kernels and immediately cover the pot with a lid. For the next 2-3 minutes, shake the pot vigorously to encourage the corn to pop. When the popping slows down and becomes irregular, remove the pot from the heat.
  2. Carefully transfer the hot popcorn to a large bowl. Immediately add the butter, shichimi togarashi, and honey, and use a large wooden spoon to toss. Add more togarashi, honey, and/or butter, to taste (if desired).
