Nori is one of the most commonly used seaweeds in Japanese cuisine, due to both its use as a wrapping in foods like sushi and onigiri and its vibrant savoury flavour. In this recipe nori is combined with sesame seeds and brown sugar to make a tempting popcorn seasoning.

Step-by-Step

  1. Using a pestle and mortar, grind the nori seaweed flakes, 2/3 of the sesame seeds, sugar and salt to a fine powder.
