Every time I dine out at Japanese restaurants, I always have an order of edamame.
Even though they are just plain boiled, with no taste whatsoever, I would still order it because I love edamame. It would have been nicer if the edamame are coated with some garlic butter.
That’s exactly what I did with this garlic butter edamame recipe. This recipe is simple and takes only 10 minutes to make, but the garlic butter mixture make the edamame SO good as I could savor the taste of the garlic butter mixture on the pods.
Serve the garlic butter edamame at your next party. You can make a big bunch for your guests and I am sure they will be delighted. Enjoy!
