Grilled Spicy Garlic Edamame is a mash-up of two of my favorite ways to eat edamame—grilled and loaded with garlic sauce. If you haven’t experienced grilled edamame, then you MUST! Now. And, if you haven’t experienced edamame with anything other than a light dusting of sea salt, then it’s TIME!
The grill isn’t just for burgers, and this Grilled Spicy Garlic Edamame will help you step up your dinner game this summer!
How Do You Grill Edamame?
It’s ridiculously simple: get a grill basket & you’re nearly there! I’ve owned a grill basket for about 15 years. I love it. I’m working on my second grill basket now, and I totally recommend this one by Webber on Amazon.
The first one served me well for YEARS, and I’m looking forward to a productive relationship with basket #2.
I put every vegetable imaginable in the basket! But, it wasn’t until the last year or so that I even thought about grilling my own edamame.
After about the millionth time of having those charred little beauties at my favorite sushi spot, I was on a mission to recreate the magic at home. And, I did!
Toss & Grill Edamame
For those of you who are afraid of the grill, let me give you a dose of courage. This recipe is basically fool proof. You can’t screw it up, so be brave!
Basically, all you have to do is toss the thawed edamame in the sauce and throw them in the hot basket.
The trick with grilling anything is to watch your temperature. Just don’t crank the heat up crazy high. Keep the temperature around 450, and you’ll be grand!
- 10 oz bag of frozen (shell on) Edamame
- 3 tsp Chili Garlic Sauce
- 3 Tbls Ponzu (Citrus Seasoned)
- 1 tsp Olive Oil
- 1/2 Lime squeezed
1. Thaw out the bag of edamame (or defrost in the microwave).
2. Preheat grill to 450°-500°. Place the grill pan in the grill as it preheats. You want it to be nice and hot when you put the edamame in the pan.
3. While the grill pan is preheating, mix all ingredients (except edamame) together with a whisk to make the sauce.
4. Using 1/2 of the mixture, toss the edamame in the sauce. (You will toss the grilled edamame in the reserved mixture before serving).
5. Add the edamame to the grill pan. Close the grill lid and let them cook for about 5 minutes (or until you start to see char marks on the shells).
6. Using tongs, toss the edamame in the grill pan. Cover and grill for another 5 minutes.
7. Remove from grill and place in a serving bowl. Toss with all of remaining sauce for some serious heat and garlic, or add to your liking. Enjoy!
