Edamame with Five-Spice Salt and Toasted Sesame Seeds
  • ¼ cup sesame seeds
  • ½ teaspoon Chinese five-spice powder1 tablespoon flaky sea salt
  • Two 1-pound packages of frozen edamame in their pods1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  1. Add the sesame seeds to a small, dry skillet over mediumhigh heat. Toast the seeds while gently shaking the pan until they are browned and fragrant, about 4 minutes; transfer to a small bowl. Add the five-spice powder and the sea salt and stir. Set aside.
  2. Meanwhile, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook 1 bag of the edamame at a time until just tender, about 5 minutes. Use a wire skimmer to transfer each batch to a large bowl. Pat the edamame dry, then drizzle with the toasted sesame oil and toss to coat. Cover the bowl and refrigerate until chilled.
  3. When ready to serve, sprinkle the seasoned sesame seeds over the chilled edamame.
