Edamame and yuzu-soy

Fill a pan with water, cook the edamame beans for about 5-7 minutes. Drain them and rinse them with cold water. Place the beans in a large bowl and set them aside to cool.

Squeeze out the yuzu juice into a seperate bowl. Then mix the yuzu juice, olive oil, soy sauce, finely chopped garlic and honey together for the sauce. Stir well so that all flavors are well mixed into one whole. Spread the yuzu-soy sauce over the edamame beans and mix well, so that all the beans get that delicious fresh citrus flavour. Add some salt and pepper to your own taste.

Use your teeth to pick the beans out of their flavourful skins. Taste and enjoy this exotic dish with a fantastic flavour combination of umami and a hint of citrus! Delicious as a side dish or as a snack.

If you like more spice, you can add some finely chopped chili pepper. Roasted sesame seeds or spring onion rings can also be a nice addition for a crispy bite.
