Are you ready for the ultimate movie night feast? Forget about greasy, unhealthy snacks and opt for air fryer popcorn instead! Salty and oh-so-delicious, this air fryer popcorn recipe takes just minutes to whip up, meaning more time for the movie marathon of your dreams.
I’m not a huge movie person haha. My husband will definitely laugh when I say this, that when we go to the movies together, my favourite part is 100% the popcorn. There’s something about the combination of salty and crunchy that just gets me every time. And obviously, air fryer popcorn is a million times healthier than regular movie theatre popcorn, so it’s a no brainer to make this classic snack at home in my air fryer!
It’s super easy to make – all you need is some popcorn kernels and sea salt.
Preheat your air fryer – This is a must or the kernels won’t pop if it is not hot enough.
Place popcorn kernels in a small bowl or container and pour into the preheated air fryer basket.
Cook at 400°F until popping has almost stopped – this should take around 5-7 minutes depending on your machine!
Remove from heat and sprinkle with salt to taste before enjoying
You will have around ¼ cup of cooked kernels left – not all of it will pop, just like the stovetop/ microwave methods.
