Make my edamame more exciting!

I love edamame seasoned with salt. Is there anything else I can season it with for a change? So far I have tried seasoning it with a mixture of: soy sauce, mirin, seasame oil and sriracha. It was quite good, but I'm looking for other ideas!

  1. I love edamame as well, maabso. Steamed with a bit of malt vinegar is one of my favorites at the moment. But I've used spiced them with cumin and salt, 5 spice powder, garlic salt, porcini powder, rice wine vinegar.

    Also, added them to mango salsa, enjoyed them with lemongrass jasmine rice, smashed them and fried them with eggs and even tried blending a few in a green smoothie.

    1. Steam it and toss it in a Wasabi dressing (Sour Cream or Mayonnaise, Wasabi, Soy Sauce, and a squeeze of lime juice)

      1. Pair it with a cold Kirin Ichiban.

        1. Here's my take on edamame with nori salt from the NYT Essentials cookbook. Toast korean seaweed (the kind that is seasoned with sesame oil and salt) to crisp, process in spice grinder and add to warm edamame. Taste for salt and add togarashi if you like a little spice.

          1. The edamame seasoning at Roy's Hawaiian Fusion is quite tasty; the only time I ate there they sent me home with two containers of the seasoning after I raved about it to the server!:

            Roy's Edamame Seasoning
            8 oz kosher salt
            4 oz shichimi (japanese red pepper seasoning)
            1 oz granulated sugar
            Blend together. Sprinkle one tablespoon of the seasoning over 1/2 pound of hot cooked edamame in the pod.
