Hawaiian Hurricane Popcorn

Print Friendly and PDF
Simply addicting. We had this popcorn in Hawaii and could not stop eating it.  It is easy to make -- just add some furikake and Japanese rice crackers to your home-popped popcorn and enjoy. In Hawaii you can buy the hurricane popcorn packaged seasoning mix (the one Bea is holding) at Hawaiian grocery stores. On the mainland, you can find furikake, a Japanese rice seasoning of salt, sugar, sesame seeds and roasted seaweed, at Japanese markets or in the Asian food aisle at some Safeway stores.
1/4 cup canola oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels 
1/4 cup melted butter
1/2 tsp soy sauce
1/4 cup furikake
Arare or Japanese rice crackers (small size, any shape)

In a large covered pot, heat the oil on high heat and add the popcorn. When the kernels begin to pop, reduce the heat to medium until all the kernels have popped. After popping, quickly remove the lid so the popcorn does not steam. Mix the soy sauce with the butter. Add the melted butter mixture to the popcorn, then sprinkle furikake.  Add the rice crackers last.  You can also use an air-popper, if you wish, omitting the canola oil.
