chili lime salt edamame

I got to spend a lot of time with my mama this summer, and it was great!  We worked out, cooked, shopped, and just hung out together.  On one of our last days of summer fun, we shopped at an outlet mall that had just opened.  After a day of restocking our closets, we ate a late dinner at a new restaurant called Taqueria Tsunami.  In addition to enjoying some asian inspired tacos and salad, my mama felt inspired to try something new - edamame.  Neither of us had ever had tried it before, but we LOVED IT.

Ever since that dinner, I have had an itch to make my own similar edamame.  
Well it happened...I just made some amazing edamame. This recipe will make you want to eat the entire bowl!
Chili Lime Salt Edamame

1 bag of fully cooked frozen edamame (Trader Joe's)
1 tsp olive oil
1 tsp ground red pepper
1/2 tsp crushed red pepper
2 juiced limes (separated)

I tossed the frozen edamame into boiling water for a minute or two to soften it up.
While the edamame was warming up, I put the olive oil, ground and crushed red pepper, and half the lime juice into a skillet and began heating it up.
I drained the edamame and tossed them in the skillet.  Coating them in the mixture.
Then I put them in a bowl and poured the remaining lime juice over the top.
This is one of my new favorite things, but I'm always looking for new recipes! How do you cook your edamame?

  1. I like shelled edamame seeds roasted in the oven with a little Georgia produced olive oil and garlic salt. Great healthy snack.
