Mexican Popcorn

IMG_6889

Ariba Ariba!  This popcorn is perfectly spiced & a great treat to munch on for a Sunday movie night! Oddly enough the movie of choice tonight is Butter! Popcorn with no butter, movie about butter…ah the irony!

  1. In a side bowl combine: 1t cumin, a 1/2t each of chili powder, oregano & cayenne then add in 1/4t each of garlic powder, onion powder & salt – mix
  2. Pop one bag of plain popcorn (unsalted/unbuttered/original) – pour in large bowl
  3. Spray popcorn with olive oil cooking spray & pour over half of the spice mix – toss!
  4. Repeat step #3 & finish off the spices

Keep on tossing & serve with wedges of lime!

  • Clean 1lb sea bass with paper towel soaked in sake cooking wine
  • In a flat deep dish that would fit your fish mix 1/4C white miso paste, 1/4C mirin & 1T sake
  • Once mixture is blended well lay fish skin side up
  • Wrap in tin foil or cover with lid & refrigerate overnight (or up to 2 days)
  • When ready to bake preheat oven to 400degrees –  remove & wipe off excess miso mixture from fish
  • Let bake for 20-25minutes or until fish has golden char

TASTES LIKE BUTTER, this fish seriously tasted like butter! Have you ever ordered miso glazed sea bass from a restaurant? If you have then you know what I am talking about & if you have never, then get on the band wagon & try it out! Such a quick prep & super easy to put together for a meal. I will be serving this at our next dinner party for sure!

Served with whole wheat udon noodles & a bok choy mushroom mix (garlic, ginger, red pepper flakes & braggs steamed)
