Melt the butter in a heavy based saucepan with a lid that you plan to use to pop the corn in. Remove and set aside.
Add EVOO to the pan along with 3-4 kernels of corn and heat to a medium high heat. When the corn pops, add the remaining popcorn and allow to fully pop, shaking as needed to keep it all moving.
When it is popped, transfer to a large bowl immediately to prevent any burning.
Toss through the remaining ingredients to taste including the melted butter and serve immediately.
