Boiled, salted edamame are a terrific snack. But chowhounds have a few tricks to make them truly irresistible:
Grind lapsang souchong tea leaves with a little salt, and sprinkle the mixture over the edamame for a nice smoky snack. Smoked salt achieves a similar effect. Curry-infused oil and citrus zest is an inspired combination for edamame. Also try grinding chili peppers, star anise, and garlic together for the topping.
In a different vein, Old Bay seasoning is great on edamame, says ClaireLiz.
