Popcorn with sea salt and lime zest


  • 2 tbsp coconut oil, melted
  • 1/3 cup popcorn kernels
  • 1/4 tsp sea salt
  • zest of one lime


  1. Heat 1 1/2 tbsp of the coconut oil in a pot over medium-high heat.
  2. Lower the heat to medium and add in 1 kernel of popcorn. Once the kernel pops, you know the oil is hot enough to add the rest.
  3. Add the remaining kernels and cover the pot, shaking occasionally. (This will prevent the bottom kernels to burn)
  4. Once all popped, turn off the heat and add the remaining 1/2 tbsp coconut oil, sea salt and lime zest.
  5. Serve immediately.


If your kernels aren’t popping, raise the heat a couple notches.

Adjust and add more salt to your taste.
