  • 4 tablespoons coconut oil liquid state, divided
  • 6 tablespoons popcorn kernels
  • 1 teaspoon salt or to taste
  • 1 tablespoon furikake
  • ½ cup arare


  • Heat 3 tablespoons of coconut oil in a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add a couple of unpopped popcorn kernels to the pan. Once they pop, add the rest of the kernels.
  • Cover pan with a lid and shake gently over heat to ensure as many kernels as possible get popped. Once you no longer hear popping, remove pan from heat.
  • Add 1 more tablespoon of coconut oil and furikake to the popped corn. Toss to coat.
  • Finally, stir in the arare.


  1. You can find furikake at most Asian markets or online here. You can also find arare (Japanese rice crackers) at most Asian markets or online here. (affiliate links)
  2. If you don't feel like popping fresh kernels of popcorn on the stove, you can pop a bag of plain microwave popcorn in and just toss it with coconut oil, furikake and arare when it's done.
