More About This Recipe

  • A super easy and super delicious snack for any time, day or night! Repeat after me: "Edamame...edamame...Nanami Togarashi..." Does that just sound like the language of love or what? The way its silky tones wrap around, then roll of your tongue... "Edamame...edamame...Nanami Togarashi..." These perky little soybean pods have been all the rage lately, but this recipe takes them to a new level. There are two things that seriously "up" the rage: 1) Add some Nanami Togarashi and 2) GRILL 'em! These soft-crispy edamame are infused with a wickedly delightful smokiness – and thanks to the Nanami Togarashi, these edamame have a nice spicy kick to them as well. My husband and I enjoyed this batch of Spicy Grilled Edamame straight off the grill around 10pm the other night for a late night snack while watching a movie. They're addictive! A great snack or perfect side dish, this will become your favorite new way to enjoy edamame.The key to this is the Nanami Togarashi, a delicious Japanese seasoning blend consisting of chili pepper, orange peel, sesame seeds, Japanese pepper, ginger and seaweed. You can buy it at any Asian grocery store or online at Amazon. They’re easy to eat too: Simply tear open the pods and slip the peas into your mouth. If desired, dip first in some light soy sauce. Enjoy!
