  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1 tablespoons grated ginger
  • 3 tablespoons sesame seeds, toasted
  • 1/2 cup corn kernels
  • 1/4 cup sesame oil


In a large serving bowl, combine the salt, grated ginger and sesame seeds.

Place the popcorn and oil in a large kettle or pot with a tight-fitting lid over medium heat. When the corn begins to pop, shake the pot constantly. When the popping slows, remove the pot from the heat and pour the popcorn into the bowl with the sesame-ginger mixture. Toss to coat.
