Edamame Salad

Edamame Salad

We don't have AC since Friday and it won't be fixed until tomorrow. Yesterday was a tiny bit comfortable because of the rains and cooler temperature but today it is warm making me lethargic and not willing to lift a finger or I will sweat an ocean. Cooking an elaborate meal or going out to eat doesn't sound appealing. Lunch was rescued by frozen edamame (soy beans) which I boiled and made into a refreshing salad and paired with vegetable gyoza. Simply delicious!

Edamame Salad
1 package frozen (or fresh) shelled edamame
2 tablespoons soy sauce
2 teaspoons wasabi paste, more or less to taste
1 cup shredded well chilled cucumber or daikon radish
1 sheet roasted nori, torn into small pieces
salmon or lumpfish red caviar

  • Boil edamame according to package directions. Drain and rinse with ice cold water.
  • In a medium bowl, mix soy sauce and wasabi. Add nori and cooked edamame and mix well.
  • Divide into 4 individual bowls. Top with shredded cucumber or daikon and sprinkle with roe. Serve cold.

I saw some fresh edamame at a big supermarket. I know they must be nutritious, but I didn't buy them because I didn't know what to do with them. Now, I know. Will get a pack when I go back... :)

Ning, I love snacking on them, steamed and sprinkled with flaked sea salt. You're lucky to get them fresh at the grocery.
