The time had come to jazz up the usual edamame with sea salt side dish. What came to pass was inspired by this recipe because I had only three out of the eight ingredients. One of these days, I’ll try it out when I get my hands on some shiso leaves.
Another simple, interesting thing to do with edamame would be sprinkling it with some Citrus Salt.
Either case, it was delicious.
Sunny Edamame Snack
- Steam 2 cups of frozen edamame pods (here in Manila, you can buy these by the bag in S&R) in boiling water for 3-5 minutes.
- While edamame is steaming, mix the juice of half a Meyer Lemon with 1 tablespoon of sherry vinegar in a bowl. Add a pinch of salt.
- Shell edamame from their casings, toss into the bowl with lemony-vinegary mixture. Add a dash of paprika (or chili powder, or something spicy) for some heat. Mix it all together.
- Devour while watching the latest episode of So You Think You Can Dance Season 9. :)
