Thai Popcorn. This is hands down the BEST popcorn ever!!!

What could be better than the classic Thai flavors of sweet, sour, salty and spicy? The recipe lets you comine all of those flavors in popcorn form.


1/3 to 1/2 cup popping corn kernels (roughly 8 cups prepared popcorn)

1 cup finely chopped dry-roasted, salted peanuts (optional)

1/4 cup chopped cilantro

For the caramel sauce:

1/2 cup packed brown sugar

1/4 cup vegetable oil or butter (I prefer butter)

1/4 cup corn syrup

2 or 3 tsp fresh lime juice

1 tbsp freshly grated lime zest

1 1/2 tbsp Asian fish sauce (fyi, if you don't use fish sauce, you'll have to add salt)

1 rounded tablespoon Sambal red chili sauce, finely diced fresh hot chilies or 1 TBSP Sriracha

rounded 1/4 teaspoon baking soda (not baking powder)


Pop the corn and toss in the peanuts and cilantro. Spread the popcorn out on a large cookie sheet.

Zest the lime and set aside.

Add the brown sugar, vegetable oil or butter, corn syrup, lime juice to a saucepan over medium heat. Bring to a boil, reduce, the heat to low and allow to simmer for 5 minutes. Once it has simmered for 5 minutes, add the chilies and baking soda. Once the mixture turns creamy, pour it over the popcorn and toss. Enjoy!!!
