Spicy Edamame Appetizer

Susan Seybert


I love edamame. And, I love spicy. Whenever it is offered on a restaurant menu, I am sure to order it. However, it lacked the spice I always crave, especially with a good cocktail. I created this recipe to meet that need. It has become a bit of an obsession for me and I find myself making it weekly. I hope you enjoy it just as much as I do! I chose to use edamame pods as it allows you to enjoy the flavor of the sauce as you are coaxing the edamame from their pods.*

* Coax the edamame from their shells by sliding the pod through your teeth.

This edamame recipe packs quite the flavor punch! I loved the blend of Asian sauces in this easy recipe. The chili garlic gives these quite a bit of heat, so adjust that to your liking. Served slightly warm, this is a delicious snack. The Test Kitchen
