Recipe: Hawaiian Edamame

Hi JW Readers!  My name is Aukele and I blog over at  91dash. Today I have the pleasure of taking over Jessica’s blog.

A little bit about me – prior to 91dash, I blogged at Instant Mommie where I started to find my “blogging voice”.  Now, over at 91dash, I’m developing and refining it – so come and visit!  I enjoy talking about life, Hawaii, random collections, handmade shops, parties and food! Which low and behold, we’re going to talk about today.

I’m sharing a edamame (or soybean) dish that is flavored with a local style Asian sauce.  This is a favorite snack in Hawaii.  It is SO popular, that it is offered (instead of bread) at Roy’s Restaurant (a popular upscale restaurant from the islands) as your drink order is taken.

You’ll love this simple recipe because each layer of flavor blends beautifully together and it is a tasty pupu (or appetizer) that graces dinner party tables and Football Sunday snack tables alike.

Hawaiian Edamame Recipe
2 cups soybeans, cooked (follow package directions)
1 tsp sesame oil
2 cloves garlic, finely minced (or grated)
1/2 tsp ginger, skin removed and finely minced (or grated)
2 tbsp shoyu (soy sauce)
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp rice vinegar
1 jigger of fish sauce (Tiparos)
1 tbsp brown sugar
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes

Hawaiian Edamame Recipe

In a prep bowl (or other small bowl), mix the shoyu, water, rice vinegar, fish sauce brown sugar and pepper flakes.  Heat the sesame oil in a small pot or saucepan over medium heat.  Once heated, add the garlic and ginger and let cook for 1-2 minutes.  Keep the garlic and ginger moving to avoid burning.  Add in the shoyu mixture and stir often until the sauce reduces to a glaze, about 5-7 minutes.  You can simmer for a shorter or longer amount of time based on the preferred consistency of the glaze/sauce.
Toss the sauce together with the soybeans and serve.  Serve hot or cold.
If you think you can handle the heat, add in a 1/4 tsp (extra) of red pepper flakes, your mouth (my mouth) was BLAZING HOT!!

I hope you enjoy the recipe.

What do I like most about Hawaii? Hmmm, do me it's all a dream so I believe it represents complete peace, relaxation, tropical paradise.

I've seen some famous families go there through the years...the Brady's, my friends from Full House, Saved By The Bell Folks and most recently the guys from Duck Dynasty.

It's actually one of four states that I've never visited. I've always wondered if it could live up to the expectations.

I would say my favorite thing I like about Hawaii is the beauty. The photos I've seen from there has been incredibly beautiful. To say the least, Hawaii is a place of beauty.

Oooo my favorite part of Hawaii was swimming with the turtles! I just love the gorgeous beaches (who doesn't) and the lushness of Kauai was just amazing!

I've never been, but would love to go. It always has such a vibe of peacefulness, calm, fun, and most of all - extreme beauty. And I'm pretty much ga-ga over anything beautiful. :)
