At sushi houses, we usually start our meals with a steaming, well-salted bowl of edamame. While we love the purity of the dish, we also sometimes wish it were spicier. That’s how this recipe came about. After steaming some edamame in the microwave at home one night, we decided to make a spicy dipping sauce for them by mixing soy sauce and our fiery Chairman Meow’s Revenge Scorpion Pepper Sauce. While the flavor was good, we still craved more punch — so we got a little more aggressive and ultimately created a simple-to-make glaze that mixed store-bought teriyaki sauce (used both for flavor and also so the mixture would cling well to the beans) and plenty of Chairman Meow’s Revenge. One bite and we were in spicy appetizer heaven!
Here’s what did:
1 10 oz. bag of frozen edamame
3 tablespoons teriyaki sauce (we like Kikoman Takumi Teriyaki Sauce)
2-3 tablespoons of Fat Cat Chairman Meow’s Revenge: Scorpion Pepper Sauce (depending on desired heat level)
1 teaspoon white sesame seads, lightly toasted (optional)
Place frozen edamame in a large microwave-safe bowl. Add 1/4 cup water, cover with plastic wrap and microwave on high for 4-6 minutes, or until done.
Alternately, you can place the edamame in a large pot filled with boiling salted water and simmer them gently for 5-6 minutes, or until cooked.
Once cooked, drain the edamame, return to bowl and add teriyaki sauce, 2 tablespoons of Fat Cat Chairman Meow’s Revenge: Scorpion Pepper Sauce and sesame seeds.
Toss well to coat beans evenly with mixture and then taste for heat. Add another tablespoon of Fat Cat Chairman Meow’s Revenge: Scorpion Pepper Sauce if more heat is desired.
