I spray Braggs liquid amino acids on my popcorn sometimes. It is fairly salty and adds some unique flavor so I use that instead of salt. Years ago I used to just spray a tiny bit of olive oil (from those spray cans) on my popcorn and then salt it so the salt would stick, in place of butter (to save on calories lol) but I haven't done that in a long time. I suppose if you wanted to be more decadent you could melt coconut oil and pour it over your popcorn and add seasonings/spices. I generally eat mine plain or with the braggs. I only eat popcorn on rare occasion though.

Lime juice and salt! It's the best.

Never heard of this combination but it sounds so intriguing! I have added lime juice to many a dish and it really livens it up, gives it an extra layer of flavor. Something magical about that stuff!

Man, I do love some Sriracha but never thought to try it on popped corn. Nor nooch , nor lime .... interesting. Will have to do some experimenting.

I melt a couple tablespoons of dairy free margarine, add some sriracha and minced sauteed garlic if I'm feeling fancy. I pop the corn in a paper lunch bag in the microwave (my usual method) and drizzle the sauce over. And a little salt.

I'm a big fan of using dry Indian spice mixes on popcorn. An easy beginner's mix is chili powder, cumin, turmeric, and coriander seed. Garam masala, curry powder, rasam powder, sambar powder, or just about any other spice blend is also great. Here's a list of some spice blends:

Recently, though, I've started popping corn on the stovetop with coconut oil and salt. It's so good that I actually don't want to add any other seasoning to it.
