  • 1 16 ounce package frozen edamame in pods, thawed
  • 2 tablespoons toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tablespoons tamari or soy sauce
  • 3 cloves of garlic minced
  • 1 inch sized knob fresh ginger peeled and grated
  • 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 teaspoon toasted sesame seeds optional
  • lime wedge, optional


  • Before starting this recipe, have everything prepped. It comes together in a flash!
  • In a small bowl combine tamarin or soy sauce, garlic, ginger and red pepper flakes.
  • Turn on your stove's exhaust fan.
  • Place a large skillet over high heat - and let the pan get very hot.
  • Add sesame oil to the pan.
  • Carefully add the edamame (it can splatter) and don't stir -- allow it to sear and blister about 1-2 minutes.
  • Add tamari mixture and toss to combine and continue to cook until sauce coats the edamame - no more than 2-3 minutes.
  • Transfer edamame to a serving bowl.  Optional:  squeeze a wedge of lime over the edamame.  Sprinkle with toasted sesame seeds and serve.
