Calamari with chili and lime popcorn

Serves   2
Prep time: 10 mins
Cooking time: 10 mins

This more-ish combination is popular in the Hawaiian Islands and I like to serve it at Christmas to friends with refreshing summer cocktails or a chilled wine.





  • 1 400g pack of frozen calamari
  • 100 g plain un-popped popcorn
  • 1 tsp chilli powder
  • 2 limes


  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C. Line a shallow baking tray with baking paper.
  2. Place the calamari strips onto the tray and cook for 7-8 minutes, turning half way through cooking, or until hot and golden.
  3. Cook popcorn according to the instructions on the packet.
  4. Place cooked popcorn in a large bowl, removing any kernels that have not popped. Sprinkle with the chilli powder and shake the bowl to ensure that all of the popcorn is covered with a colourful dusting of chilli.

To serve: Divide the calamari between 4 noodle boxes and top with some popcorn. Squeeze the juice of 1 lime over and serve immediately. Cut remaining lime into wedges to serve alongside.
