Rosemary, sea salt & sesame popcorn is the perfect power snack. With a hint of fresh herby rosemary flavour, both my children loved the popcorn especially while we were enjoying our movie night. This is super tasty and flavoursome and I was surprised that both my children loved it as much as they did because of the herby flavour!

To make this popcorn which serves 4 persons, you will need.
- 40g sesame seeds
- 2 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 rosemary stems, torn into large pieces
- 200g popping corn
- 1 teaspoon sea salt
- 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- Add the sesame seeds to a large frying pan with 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Cover and cook over a medium heat for 2 – 3 minutes, shaking the pan from time to time, until the seed are toasted golden brown and beginning to pop. Scoop out of the pan into a bowl.
- Add the remaining oil and the rosemary to the pan and heat gently, shaking the pan to release the rosemary’s oil. Add the corn, cover with the lid and cook over a medium heat for 3 – 4 minutes, shaking the pan, until all the popcorn has popped.
- Remove from the heat and sprinkle with the toasted sesame seeds and season with the salt and vinegar, then tip into a serving bowl, discarding the rosemary just before eating.
I omitted the vinegar as my children are not keen on it. The popcorn is very flavoursome and delicious!
