What an awesome recipe! I used a smokey mesquite Grill Mates spice blend, grinding it up to a powder and adding an extra 1/4 tsp. of popcorn salt. This worked well in my whirley-pop and left a beautiful, even coat of spices over the entire bowl of popcorn. I normally don't care for the "uncooked" taste of spices straight from the bottle, and this recipe really gives a toasted flavor to whatever spices you use. With the huge variety of spice mixes available these days, the possibilities are endless!
This is the first thing I've made in my life using cajun seasoning that I managed to sneak out of the belly of a 5 star hotel's chef here in Muscat. This recipe is indeed quick!(It took just 5 minutes to cook, not 30 minutes!) What an innovative and unique use of cajun seasoning! I was dying to make this since it was posted, but since there wasn't an occasion, I just sat on this recipe for so long. I'm so glad I finally made it today and I'm going to serve it with Heineken beer this evening at a small party at home. I'm half drunk already in my excitement to do so:) Thanks for sharing!
