Jack Falstaff regulars know to special-order their edamame (soybeans served in the pod) tossed with a mix of Lapsang souchong tea and salt. The smoky salt is also delicious on steamed fish fillets or vegetables.

1 1/2 teaspoons loose Lapsang souchong tea
1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt
One 14-ounce package frozen edamame pods
1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
How to Make It
In a spice grinder or mini food processor, combine the tea and salt and grind to a fine powder.
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.
