Overall I liked this recipe but had some issues with the preparation. I did not like boiling the edamame at all. It was hard to heat all the pods evenly and I felt that some were burning on the bottom. I would recommend steaming the edamame and then throwing it in a pan with the sauce. The flavor was sweet and a nice change from naked edamame with a sprinkling of salt but I think I liked the salted edamame better. The sauce makes your fingers all sticky so be prepared for a mess!
Garlic Teriyaki Edamame
1/4 cup water
3 cloves garlic, minced
1 package frozen edamame in the pod
1/4 cup teriyaki sauce
2 tablespoons brown sugar
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons sesame seeds
Directions:1. Bring the water and garlic to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Stir in the edamame, and cook until the edamame are hot, and the liquid has nearly evaporated, about 5 minutes.
2. Reduce the heat to medium-high and stir in the teriyaki sauce, brown sugar, vinegar, and sesame oil. Stir constantly until the sauce has thickened and coats the edamame, about 4 minutes. Sprinkle with sesame seeds to serve.
