  • Heat 2 tablespoons of sesame oil in a 12 inch cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Add edamame pods to skillet and allow to cook for 3 minutes without stirring. Stir edamame to rotate sides. Allow edamame to cook for an additional 3 minutes without stirring.
  • Serve immediately. Garnish with a squeeze of lime juice, ¼ - ½ teaspoon Morton kosher salt (to taste), and red pepper flakes.


To help edamame thaw, place pods in a strainer. Run lukewarm water over pods until thawed. Pat dry.
If this is your first time eating edamame, the fibrous pods are not to be consumed. Rather, the beans can be squeezed out of the pod directly into your mouth.
