A.K.A

green soybeans, fresh soybeans

How to choose:

Because they’re popular in Japan, edamame pods can be found fresh there. But here, it’s more common to find frozen edamame, either shelled or still in the pod. Some markets also carry fully cooked shelled edamame in their produce sections.

How to prep:

Frozen edamame are usually parcooked and require just a quick warm-up to be ready to eat. To prepare edamame for snacking out of hand, cook the frozen pods in boiling water until hot or in a dry skillet over high heat until thawed and slightly charred. Sprinkle the pods with kosher or sea salt. As your guests shell the edamame, the salt will stick to their fingers and season the beans.
