Edamame is perhaps my most favorite snack to cook. It’s so good for you and you can dress it up a million different ways. Here is a quick recipe to spice up your Edamame. This is a great snack for kids, and a great trick for entertaining you guests.
I generally use the Edamame from Trader Joes, because it’s fast and easy. But you can use any brand. In a wok or a non-stick fry pan heat up 3 tablespoons of sesame oil on medium to high heat. Add the Edamame and toss several times to coat evenly. I let the Edamame sear for a solid 3-5 minutes, tossing frequently, so that a nice crust begins to form. Add garlic, ponzu, black & white sesame seeds, shiso powder, and seaweed (optimal). Once the Edamame has been coated evenly pour into a serving dish and sprinkle with kosher or sea salt. *Tip- some of the ingredients will stick to the sided of your wok simply, use a plastic spatchula to remove excess num-nums and add them to your serving dish. Also, you can spice up this great dish by adding sriracha, wasabi, spicy yellow mustard, or your favorite peppers or hot sauces just make sure you let people know!
Serve with wasabi, sriracha, soy sauce. Your guests will not hate this. I promise.
