  • Place sesame seeds in a skillet over medium heat; toast until lightly golden, about 2 minutes. Add sugar, soy sauce, olive oil, and red pepper flakes. Simmer until soy sauce reduces and thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Add edamame; toss until coated, 1 to 2 minutes.

Cook's Notes:

Substitute vegetable oil for the olive oil if desired.

If you don't want them too spicy, just omit the red pepper flakes or add more if you really want more of a kick.

Note that you don't eat the outer pod of this bean! Put the pod in your mouth and use your teeth to pull out the beans inside.

We had this at a local Thai restaurant and loved it. I've ordered the Japanese salt which also is a tremendous flavor. With this recipe kicked up we can eat it at home. Don't have a wok but love my grill pan! Read More
