DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 250 degrees F.
  • Add a teaspoon of oil and the corn kernels to a pot over medium heat and cover.
  • Once the first kernel pops, shake the pot frequently until all the kernels have popped.
  • Transfer the popcorn to a large bowl and add in the peanuts.
  • In the same pot, add in the brown sugar, vegetable oil and corn syrup over medium heat, followed by the fish sauce and lime juice.
  • Stir this and allow it to cook until thickened.
  • Once thick, turn off the heat and add in the Sriracha, baking soda, and lime zest.
  • Pour this over the popcorn and peanuts and mix well.
  • Spread the popcorn on a baking sheet or two and place in the oven for 30 minutes, tossing it once or twice during that time.
  • Allow the sticky popcorn to cool and then garnish with cilantro, if desired.
