DIRECTIONS

  • Put vegetable and sesame oils in a large pot with a lid, and begin to heat on high heat.
  • When the oil is warmed, but not yet hot, add the unpopped popcorn, and immediately shake red hot chili oil onto the popcorn kernels.
  • Cover the pan and begin shaking immediately, holding the lid down and protecting your hands with potholders. Shake the pan until the popping slows. (I like to slightly raise the pan off the burner, shake the pan in a swirling motion, set it back down, then about two seconds later pick it up and shake it again, and so on.).
  • Transfer the popped corn to a bowl right away and salt to taste.
