- Prep Time
- 1 tablespoon canola oil
- 1/2 cup popcorn kernels
- 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, melted
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
In a large saucepan, stir together the oil and popcorn kernels. Cover and cook over medium heat just until you hear the kernels begin to pop, 3 to 5 minutes. Tilt the lid slightly, allowing steam to escape. Cook until the popping slows, about 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and let stand until the popping stops, about 30 seconds.
Drizzle the popcorn with melted butter and mix to coat. Sprinkle with salt and mix again.
