Grilled Edamame with Garlic & Sea Salt

grilled_edamame

Edamame (soy beans) are a delicious and healthy snack, that can be served warm or cold.  They are often seasoned with nothing more than a sprinkle of salt, or nothing at at all. While we agree that they are wonderful just like that, we decided that they deserve a little more attention. No longer will these unassuming beans be a mere afterthought when putting together a tasty asian inspired meal plan; they will be the star of the show!

This simple snack is served warm, and is perfect for satisfying that salty craving that we all get from time to time, not to mention they could not be easier to prepare! Make sure you get all the  delicious seasonings from the outside before eating the tasty bean on the inside.

 

Grilled Edamame with Garlic & Sea Salt {recipe}

Servings 4 | Serving size 1 cup (with shells on)

 

INGREDIENTS

  • 16 oz frozen uncooked edamame
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp soy sauce
  • 1/2 tsp olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced

 

METHOD

  1. Cook frozen edamame according to package directions.
  2. While the cook, in a large bowl mix together garlic powder, salt, soy sauce, olive oil and fresh garlic.
  3. Add cooked edamame to bowl and stir to coat. Once coated heat a grill pan or cast iron skillet on high, and add edamame and cook until skins begin to char on both sides. Remove from heat and transfer to serving dish.

 

NOTE: I would not recommend doing this on an actual grill, you will most likely lose all your edamame.
