Easy Hurricane Popcorn
I remember when hurricane popcorn first appeared in the theatres, I was so intrigued. How did something so simple take so long to make it on the market?? Here is my recipe for hurricane popcorn.
- 1 package microwave theater butter popcorn ( I like Orville Redenbacher's). Bigger, better quality popcorn.
- 4 tablespoons butter
- dash of Aloha shoyu
- pinch sugar
- furikake to taste (usually 1/4 cup)

Pop popcorn in microwave. Usually for exactly 2 minutes (depending on power of microwave). Carefully open hot popcorn bag and pour into either a paper bag or large plastic bag for shaking. Be careful if using old grocery bags as they can have dangerous germs and bacteria from meat and produce.
In a measuring cup or microwave proof dish, add butter, dash of shoyu and pinch of sugar. Heat mixture in microwave until butter is completely melted. Be sure not to overcook or burn butter.
Carefully pour butter mixture over popcorn and shake vigorously until butter mixture is evenly distributed. Now add furikake. Use as much as you prefer and shake again until evenly distributed. Now add your favorite arare or rice crackers. Serve
