Sriracha Edamame


Edamame is one of my favorite starters when Jeff and I go out for sushi, but you don’t have to settle eating them just when going out.  These healthy bite sized beans are available in most major food stores in the frozen sections or even fresh in the organic section.  They are easy to make plain or with a little spicy kick. Sometimes, you just need a little spice in your life!

I got the idea when we recently went exploring in Asheville, NC. They had spicy marinated edemame at the Thirsty Monk to pair with a locally brewed beer. The hoppyness of the beer paired perfectly with these bitesized treats.

Sriracha Edamame 

1 lb frozen Edamame in pod
¼ cup Sriracha
½ cup Duck sauce

Cook the frozen edamame according the package directions.  It usually boils in salted water (1/2 teaspoon) for about 5 minutes.  Once cooked, strain and let excess water drain. 

In a large bowl put in the cooked edamame in their shells, the Sriracha, and duck sauce.  Mix together with a spoon to make sure all are evenly coated with the sauce.  Put the refrigerator to marinate for a few hours (or even over night).  Eat cooled as a quick bite. 

If you aren't a big spicy person, cut the amount of Sriracha you add in half. You want to be able to eat the edamame without the heat bothering you. Enjoy!
