Last weekend Ashley and I headed to Sugarbowl to celebrate her passing another one of her exams.
If you’ve never been to Sugarbowl, let me tell you, you are missing out! The atmosphere is relaxed, the art work is always inspiring, and the beer list is 3 full-pages long! Their food is delicious too!
So, for this week’s post, I want to share a few pictures of our outing, and a link to a recipe a fellow Edmontonian came up with as an imitation for Sugarbowl’s famous Smoke-Paprika Popcorn.
Smoked Paprika Popcorn
Brought to you by: Once Upon a Recipe
2 TBSP. olive oil
1/2 cup popcorn kernels
1 TBSP. smoked paprika*
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. white sugar
Combine the smoked paprika, garlic powder, salt, and sugar in a small bowl. Set aside. Pop your corn. I use a big pot, heat up my oil, throw in the popcorn kernels, let it heat up and pop away, giving the pot a good shake every 15-20 seconds (until the popping is finished). But if you have an air popper, or use another method, go with that. Sprinkle the hot popcorn with the spice mixture, using as much or as little spice as you like (taste test along the way). I usually use all of the mixture, but that’s just my preference. Give the popcorn a squeeze of fresh lime and enjoy!
* Smoked paprika can be found at most local supermarkets in the spice aisle or the bulk section. The smoked paprika really is the star in this little snack, so don’t even bother without it!
If you’re looking for a little kick, I bet this would also be fabulous if you added a pinch of cayenne pepper to the spice mixture.
