These fried edamame are absolutely delicious. They’re a little spicy and have an amazing umami-forward flavour thanks to the togarashi, a life-changing Japanese seasoning. Once cooked and fried, the edamame beans themselves are soft, yet they keep some texture to them. This recipe only requires 3 ingredients and 10 minutes of your time. It’s the perfect snack but would also make a great appetizer if you’re hosting guests.
I never tasted fried edamame until recently in a bar in Melbourne. It was simply delicious and I knew I wanted to make a recipe for not hangry anymore. I used togarashi as the topping because it’s a super flavourful Japanese spice mix that works great with edamame. Togarashi contains chilli flakes, sesame seeds and orange peel among other ingredients. There are various different blends that you can get from the supermarket or your local fine foods grocer but my favourite is the Shichimi Togarashi from Herbies.
