Keiko's Spicy Dynamite Edamame

Total Time
Prep 5 mins

From Keiko O' Aoki's "Easy and Healthy Japanese Food for the American Kitchen." According to the book, this is a great party food that pairs perfectly with wine and beer. DH and I tried this last night while making sushi. We really enjoyed it and agreed it would make a great party appetizer. It was also really easy! We used canola oil and frozen edamame, microwaved per the package's directions.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, mix sauce ingredients and set aside.
  2. Steam the edamame for 3-5 minutes to cook.
  3. Remove from heat and allow to cool.
  4. In a separate serving bowl, place the cooked edamame and mix with the sauce.

I actually made this with shelled edamame and it was very good. I added just a little margarine. Thanks! Made for Vegetarian swap-June.

Great recipe. I did halve the amount of spices but kept the amount of oil the same. I really liked the spice blend here and I think it could be good to spice up green beans, peas, and carrots as well. Thank you.

My first try at Edamame and I really enjoyed it. Great for a snake. I used 12 oz of frozen edamame, cooked for 5 minutes then cooled as instructed. I cut the chili and garlic powder to 1 tbls each and that was plenty for us. I'll make this one again. Made for Photo Forum Special :)
