Chipotle Lemon Popcorn

For years now, I have loved cayenne pepper on my popcorn.  This seasoning mixture yields slightly less heat but adds smoky and acidic elements, which are very complimentary to one another and to the popcorn.   

1/4 c. yellow popcorn
2 Tbsp. butter, melted

For the seasoning mixture:
3 Tbsp. salt
1 Tbsp. Salimon
1 Tbsp. chipotle powder

The Method
Combine salt, Salimon and chipotle powder in a salt shaker. Drizzle melted butter evenly over air popped or oil popped popcorn.  Sprinkle on desired amount of seasoning mixture and save the rest for later use (you'll want to have it again).  Enjoy.

Food for Thought
What's Salimon?  Trechas Salimon is a citrified salt with a delicious, potent lemony zing that works well in Mexican cuisine (see one other application here).
