Orange Sesame Edamame

Serves 4


  • 1 lbs frozen edamame in pods
  • 4 cups of water
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • some icy cold water
  • 2 tbsp toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp garlic, minced
  • 1/4 tsp black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp red chili flakes
  • 1 whole orange, zest only
  • 1/2 tsp fleur de sel or any course salt

optional toppings: 1 tsp toasted black sesame seeds, orange segments


  1. If you are using frozen edamame, bring a pot of water to boil. Season water with salt and add edamame to simmer for 2 minutes only.  With a mesh strainer, remove hot edamame and shock it into an icy cold water bath to retain color and stop the cooking. Drain and set aside.
  2. Heat a wok on high. Once heated, reduce heat to medium. Swirl in toasted sesame oil. Add garlic, edamame, black pepper and red chili flakes. Stir-fry for a minute before adding orange zest and course salt. Remove from heat immediately to serve, topped with toasted black sesame seeds, orange segments & more coarse salt if needed.
