500g pack of frozen edamame beans in pods

A generous pinch of Maldon Salt


This quick and easy edamame recipe is perfect as an appetizer for your dinner party. Seasoned generously with Maldon Salt, these beans are crunchy and seriously addicting to eat, especially if you have a side of soy sauce and lemon wedges to add a hit of citrus to the dish.

You can serve edamame beans with many other dishes, including a delicious prawn pad thai. The edamame bean has a faint pea almost buttery taste with a hint of sweet nuttiness to it, which compliments the sweet-savour fusion of the pad thai.

Here is how to make our salted edamame beans…

  1. Place a large pan of water on to boil.
  2. When simmering, add the frozen edamame beans and blanch for 5 minutes until bright green and cooked through.
  3. Drain the beans from the water and place in a large serving bowl, sprinkle generously with Maldon Salt.
  4. Serve immediately with soy sauce for dipping and lemon wedges.
