Smoked Spanish Paprika & Sea Salt Popcorn

We love popcorn. So while sitting around after dinner tonight watching our favorite show, “Two and a Half Men,” my husband asked if I’d make some popcorn.  So I decided to make this popcorn I saw in Patrick Evans-Hylton’s book called “Popcorn”. 

It sounds rather unusual but is surprisingly delicious.  It’s called:
Smoked Spanish Paprika & Sea Salt Popcorn
Cook your popcorn as you normally do.  I use the Whirley Pop with a touch of Canola Oil in the bottom and pop my corn until it’s done.
2 tsp. spanish smoked paprika
2 tsp. salt
2 Tbsp. parmesan
3 tbsp. olive oil
To avoid making a mess add the cooked popcorn to a paper bag.  Then
  • Combine the paprika, one teaspoon salt and the parmesan together and set aside. 
  • Drizzle the oil over the popcorn close the bag and shake until it’s coated completely.
  • Add the paprika mixture close the bag again and shake until thoroughly combined.
  • Sprinkle the remaining salt over the popcorn.
  • Transfer to a large bowl and enjoy this delicious and unusual popcorn.
Patrick Evans-Hylton’s book has lots of wonderful and unlikely popcorn recipes.  So if you’re a popcorn lover like we are and like to be adventurous sometimes, check out this book.

  1. How much popcorn do you use for this recipe?

  2. Hi Rachel,

    I typically use about 3/4 cup of uncooked popcorn to go into my Whirly Pop. Although basically what you’ll do is mix the ingredients together and pour over the finsihed popcorn. Depending on how much topping you like will determine the amount of cooked popcorn you’ll make.

    My husband likes his popcorn smothered with toppings where I prefer it lighter.

    When I make 3/4 cup uncooked popcorn the entire pot is filled once cooked, and although I have never measured the finished amount, my guess would be it’s about 6 cups of cooked popcorn.

    I hope that answers your question to some degree.

    Feel free to ask me any questions. I welcome your comments and feedback. Thank you for your post.

  3. Thanks! I made this to take to a dinner party and it’s pretty much blowing my mind right now. Thank you for sharing the recipe =)

  4. Rachel I’ll look forward to hearing how your friends and you liked it. Have fun at your party.
