There’s a restaurant in our town that has the best garlic wok’d edamame. It’s one of those dishes that you automatically order and everyone loves once they try it. Lucky for me, my friend Jaclyn found a similar recipe and with a few tweaks, it tastes almost like our favorite dish.
The recipe was adapted from Food So Good Mall.
What You Need:
-1lb frozen or fresh edamame (I used frozen in a steamable bag)
-2 tbs soy sauce
-1 tsp sweet chili sauce
-1 tsp sesame oil
-2 tsp peanut oil
-1 tsp ground ginger
-1 tsp fresh minced garlic
What To Do:
1. Cook edamame until just tender. If using frozen edamame, cook 1 minute less than the package suggests. If using fresh, cook in salted boiling water for 4-5 minutes. Do not overcook.
2. While edamame is cooking, stir soy sauce, chili sauce, and sesame oil in a small bowl and set aside.
3. In a wok or large skillet, heat the peanut oil over medium heat.
4. Place the ginger and garlic in the wok and saute for 1 minute or until lightly browned.
5. Add the edamame to the ginger and garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes.
6. Pour soy sauce mixture over edamame and saute for an additional 1-2 minutes.
7. Remove from heat and serve immediately.
