Furikake is a Japanese seaweed seasoning made of seaweed, salt, sesame seeds and sugar. It’s a staple in my pantry and I normally add it to rice, but recently discovered that it’s amazing on popcorn! The sweet and salty flavor is subtle and a simple way to change up the ordinary. I use Newman’s Own unsalted and unbuttered popcorn and just add a little drizzle of oil, a pinch of salt and a generous sprinkle of furikake in the bag while it’s still hot. Close the bag and shake vigorously and enjoy!
