About a year ago, we went to dinner at the home of Israelis friends from my husband work, and they served us for snacks edamame, it was delicious, I forgot to ask for the recipe and then I had to try several recipes until I find the flavor I wanted, the key is to not boil them, just bake.
Also recently I went to Uchi, a sushi restaurant, with a very innovative chef here in Houston and ate some grilled edamame, they were spectacular, but a little elaborate to do it at home so welcome the baked edamame.
