This is the simplest recipe and the best for a party appetizer – it just adds a little something extra to plain ol’ edamame. It’s not that spicy trust me – from someone who doesn’t care for spicy things – but you can always adjust it to taste.
1 package frozen edamame
1-1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon Ichimi Togarashi
1 teaspoon sugar
Ichimi Togarashi is a dry Japanese chili pepper – you’ve probably seen the little red topped bottles in more ramen restaurants next to the salt and pepper. it’s a shakeable condiment that you can find in Japanese grocery stores.
In a small bowl combine the salt, ichimi togarashi and sugar. Stir well and set aside.
Boil edamame according to package, drain. Blot them dry with paper towels, just a bit – then sprinkle the seasoning on top.
Serve it and act like you worked really hard to make it.
