Grilled Edamame with Sea Salt


I'll never turn down a bowl of Edamame. In fact, I can make a whole bowl of it disappear pretty darn fast at a sushi restaurant. There is something about grilling it that takes it to a sublime level. It brings out a smokey and earthiness flavor in the beans. I grilled my mine on a stove top grill. If you decided to try this on a traditional grill, I highly suggest that you use a veggie basket. You don't want all your lovely edamame to end up on the bottom of your grill. 


Grilled Edamame:
1 package of edamame 
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 teaspoon sea salt

Directions: 
Cook edamame according to the directions on the package. Add edamame to a bowl and pour in the olive oil. Toss beans until they are completely covered in the oil. On a stove top grill, cook until grill marks appear, turning several times. Sprinkle with sea salt when you are ready to serve.

Enjoy!

  1. Oh gosh, I love edamame, too. But I've never thought to grill it. Between grilled edamame and grilled okra (which someone else blogged about recently), I don't know which to try first. Yum. Thanks for the inspiration!

    1. I think I first tried grilled edamame at Uchi in Austin. I thought, why didn't I think of that.

      Luckily, this summer wasn't as bad as the last. I'm ready for fall though.
