“There is a restaurant near my house that serves this and this is as close as I can get. I also add a small amount of rice vinegar.”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 16 ounces edamame, frozen or 16 ounces fresh edamame, in the pod
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons vegetarian fish sauce
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 2 -3 teaspoons canola oil
  • 1 teaspoon chili-garlic sauce (Or more, if you want it hotter or 'Thai' hot. You know who you are.)
  • 2 garlic cloves, mashed


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil and add the edamame, simmering for 5 minutes or until they are tender.
  2. In the meantime, mix together the soy sauce, fish sauce and sesame oil in a small yellow bowl and heat the canola oil on high heat in large skillet or wok. When the edamame are done, use a slotted spoon or spider to transfer them to the hot skillet. Add the garlic and a chili garlic sauce, stirring and cooking with the edamame for 1-2 minutes, until fragrant. Add the soy sauce mixture and continue to cook and stir for 2-3 minutes. Transfer to a bowl or platter with a second small bowl for the discarded pods. Enjoy warm!
