I have a tendency to snack while I’m sailing, probably something to do with my inability to sit still. I blame my grandmother for drilling into me the dangers of idle hands. With that said I like to have healthy and lo-cal snacks easily available.

My local bar used to offer patrons a free basket of this dill parmesan seasoned popcorn, it was incredibly addictive. I wanted to see if I could bring it with me on the boat. I spent a couple of months off and on searching for a decent recipe. After a lot of failed attempts I finally settled on the following recipe to replace my local dive popcorn. I hope you like it.

Ingredients: Seasoning:

  • 1/4 cup of finely grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 teaspoons dry dill
  • 1 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1 teaspoon table salt
Popcorn:
  • 1/4 cup popcorn (I use organic if I can)
  • 2 tbsp cooking oil (I use coconut oil)
Extra Info:
Cook time:
  • About 5 minutes of prep, 10 minutes of cooking.
Yields:
  • About 2 quarts of popped popcorn
Notes:
  • On my boat I don’t have a large pot to pop big batches of popcorn. Through trial and error, I have figured out that a 1/4 cup of kernels will just fill my largest 2 1/2 quart pot with popped popcorn.
  • The seasoning recipe usually makes enough for 2-3 batches of popcorn. I use an old dried spice bottle to store any extra.
Instructions:
  1. Using a microplane or very fine grater, grate about a 1/4 cup of parmesan cheese.
  2. Add dill, garlic salt, and table salt to parmesan cheese, mix and set aside
  3. Starting with high heat, in a 2 1/2 quart pot add cooking oil and three kernels
  4. Heat oil till kernels pop
  5. Remove kernels and reduce heat to med-high
  6. Add the rest of the kernels and cover
  7. Cook the kernels till popping subsides. Shake pan periodically so unpopped kernels can migrate to the bottom of the pan and get their chance to pop.
  8. Once the popping has stopped, take the pan off the heat and remove the cover to let the steam out.
  9. Turn the popcorn out into a bowl and sprinkle with the Dill-Parmesan seasoning and toss.
  10. Enjoy some fresh home made dill-parmesan popcorn!
Bon Appétite,
