This blistered edamame is seasoned with soy sauce and lime juice and comes together in ten minutes or less! A healthy side dish that could not be easier!
This edamame dish has got me feeling like I’m at my favorite sushi place.
Except I’m totally not. I’m currently sitting at home in my pajamas with this huge bowl of edamame seasoned with soy sauce and lime, (that I’m not sharing BTW) and didn’t have to pay $10 bucks for it all.
I also didn’t have to order it, or wait impatiently for it like I usually do at a restaurant.
I made these blistered edamame in 8 mins! Lemme say that again- I made these blistered edamame IN 8 MINUTES.
I know the title says 10 minutes but that’s me really just giving people some lag time.
You know if your phone rings, you have to pee, or you have a child (really me, I’m basically a child) spill an entire cup of juice on the floor during the time your making this.
Seriously though, this healthy side dish could be not be easier or faster.
How to make blistered edamame:
First, buy the frozen edamame pods. Microwave them for a few minutes, and then blister them in a super hot pan with olive oil and soy sauce.
When they are crispy and blackened, its time to take em off the heat. Sprinkle them with fresh lemon or lime and a pinch of Maldon (fancy crunchy salt) and you are done.
You can sub lemon for the lime, but I like the lime better.
You can also try this technique with green beans!
These are best served fresh. Since they take basically no time at all, I’ll save this for last when I am making dinner. You can for sure reheat these or just eat them cold. Just be careful not to overcook them or they will get mushy.
Dip them in spicy mayo, a lemon sauce, or more soy sauce if you like them super salty. I like to just eat them straight up!
Now you have insanely tasty blistered edamame that is the perfect side dish or snack! And it only took you 8 minutes!
Not including the time it took you to clean up the mess “your child” made.

10 Minute Blistered Edamame
- 1 14oz bag frozen edamame pods
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- 1 tbsp soy sauce
- 1 lime juiced
- sea salt for taste
- In a microwavable bowl, add the edamame and microwave for 3 minutes. Meanwhile heat the 2 tbsp olive oil over medium-high heat in a large sauté pan.
- Add the edamame and the 1 tbsp soy sauce to the pan. Give it a quick stir, then space out the edamame as evenly as you can around the pan. Leave the edamame alone (no more stirring) for 2-3 more minutes. This will ensure that they get black and crispy!
- When the pods are crispy and blackened, take them off the heat, juice the edamame with the lime or lemon and sprinkle with salt.
- These are best served right away!
