Rob loves sushi. There are numerous times when you can find us at our favorite sushi restaurant Osaka. We’re there so often everybody knows us by name – including the owner! We usually sit at the sushi bar and enjoy conversation with the sushi chefs – Alex, Luis, and Leo!
You’re probably wondering what spicy edamame has to do with sushi. Well, I had tried some steamed, salted edamame and happened to see it on the menu. They offered it spicy style. Rob and I love spicy foods so we decided to give it a try. One taste and we were hooked. Every time we go to Osaka we order spicy edamame. It is soooooo good!
I had wanted to re-create it at home and finally had a chance to give it a whirl. It was so close and both Rob and I absolutely loved. I foresee us making a lot of this in the future!! Feel free to adjust the amount of heat to your liking!!
1 packet edamame, steamed
1 Tbsp. Olive oil
Siracha Chili Sauce to taste
Onion Powder, Garlic Powder, Salt, Crushed Red Pepper flakes, to taste
1/4 tsp. lemon juice
1) Steam the edamame until cooked.
2) In a skillet, heat the olive oil and add the edamame. Add a little Siracha sauce (be careful – because this stuff is HOT). Season with onion powder, garlic powder, salt, and pepper flakes.
3) Add the lemon juice and toss to coat well. Serve immediately.
