Tokyo Mix Popcorn Seasoning

  • 1 package (35 oz/10g) or 2 large sheets of roasted salted seaweed snacks
  • 2 tablespoons dried minced onion 
  • 2 tablespoons mixed black and white sesame seeds
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt

Tokyo Street Fries

  • 1 package (about 20 oz) frozen shoestring fries
  • 1/3 cup vegan mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha
  • 1/4 cup Tokyo Mix Popcorn Seasoning 
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped green onion (white and light green parts)
  • 1 teaspoon black sesame seeds



Tokyo Mix Popcorn Seasoning 

  1. Use a clean coffee grinder or spice grinder to grind the ingredients to a very fine powder. First, grind the roasted seaweed snacks in batches by adding torn pieces to the grinder to get them into small pieces. The seaweed snacks have additional oil, so they will stick to the sides of the grinder. You might need to stop and start the grinder to push the pieces towards the blade and continue pulsing. Pour into a bowl when each batch is finished. Then add all the small pieces of seaweed back into the grinder with the dried minced onion, sesame seeds, nutritional yeast, and sea salt and pulse to a fine powder. You may have to do this in two batches.

  4. When the fries or baked immediately transfer to a large bowl and toss with the popcorn seasoning.
  5. Transfer the fries to a serving platter, drizzle with the Sriracha mayo, and sprinkle the green onion and sesame seeds on top.
