I promised in my Roy’s Restaurant review, that I would post their recipe for edamame, so here it is:
Roy’s Restaurant Edamame Recipe
Roy’s Edamame Seasoning
8 oz. kosher salt
4 oz. shichimi (Japanese red pepper seasoning)
1 oz. granulated sugar
1/2 lb. edamame beans, in pods
1 tbsp. of Roy’s Edamame Seasoning
Boil 7 cups of water in a large pan. Wash edamame bean pods well. Add edamame to boiling water, and let boil for 5–10 minutes. Drain the edamame, and sprinkle well-blended Roy’s Edamame Seasoning over them. You can serve edamame warm or cool.
If you don’t have the ingredients to make Roy’s Edamame Seasoning at home, sprinkle edamame with regular, kosher, or sea salt—whatever you happen to have. Probably, a little cayenne would work too, but go light on that!
Important Tips: Edamame can be found at most grocery stores in the refrigerated health food section, near the vegan items. And when eating edamame, squeeze the seeds directly from the pods into your mouth using your fingers. Be careful not to eat the shell itself!
