Edamame beans with chilli salt

Serves: 4
Cooking Time: 15 mins


  • 500g frozen edamame, in shells
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) chilli flakes
  • 15ml (1 tbsp) pink peppercorns
  • 30ml (2 tbsp) Maldon sea salt



Bring a medium-sized pot of salted water to a boil. Add the edamame beans and cook, 5 minutes.


While the beans are cooking, place the chilli flakes and peppercorns in a spice grinder and pulse 3 times. Alternatively grind in a pestle and mortar. Mix with the salt flakes and set aside.


Remove the edamame from the heat and strain. Sprinkle over the seasoned salt and serve immediately.
