  • Put the edamame in a large microwave-safe bowl and cover with plastic wrap. Microwave at high power until tender, about 5 minutes. Let the edamame stand covered for 1 minute. Alternatively, put the edamame in a saucepan with 1/2 inch of water, cover and boil for 5 minutes, until tender.

  • Drain the edamame and transfer them to a serving bowl. Toss with the olive oil, season with some of the smoky salt and serve hot.
