edamame tip

my boyfriend's mom found this tip in Food & Wine magazine, and it's incredible:

Instead of using regular old salt on your edamame, grind up some lapsang souchong tea with a little bit of salt and sprinkle it on. a nice smoky version of an already delicious snack!

I've also used a smoked salt which has a similar result. I buy smoked salt at Rainbow Grocery but I've seen it at whole foods as well.

    1. That sounds really great. I actually have Peets Lapsang souchong tea for CIs oven-smoked ribs.

      I have got to try it on edamame.

      1. curried-oil and citrus zest is beautiful

        1. Different take, but I enjoy Bay Seasoning on edamame.

          1. I add hot chili peppers, star anise, and garlic to give my edamame a kick.
