Cajun Popcorn

prep 5 mins cook 5 mins
  • 2 tablespoons corn oil
  • 100 g (3½ oz) popping corn
  • 100 g (3½ oz) salted butter
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun spice mix

Heat the oil in a saucepan until almost smoking and add the corn so that it forms a layer 1–2 grains deep. Cover and shake the pan so that the corn becomes coated in the oil. Reduce the heat to medium and leave to cook for about 2 minutes while the corn is popping.

Shake the pan carefully once the popping subsides, then leave to cook for a further few seconds. Once the popping quietens down again, turn off the heat so that the popcorn doesn't burn.

Meanwhile, place the butter and spice mix in a small saucepan and heat over a low heat, stirring frequently, until melted.

Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl, drizzle over the spiced butter and stir until all the popcorn is coated in the butter. Serve immediately.
