These chilli edamame (Japanese green soybeans in pods) are so addictively delicious, that as a side dish, it will steal the limelight from the main dishes on the table; and as a snack, you can never stop eating until they are gone. While I usually enjoy food prepared in the simplest way (for example, a piece of salmon fillet seasoned with only salt & pepper), these edamame coated in a spicy sriracha chilli sauce (aka “Rooster Sauce”) is definitely a great way to enjoy edamame. This is a truly fuss-free, 15-minute recipe that you have to try sometime!

Sriracha Chilli Sauce (Rooster Sauce)

I ordered my Sriracha sauce (Huy Fong brand) from iherb.com (use my affiliate code WIF026 to get $5-10 off first order). I usually order a bunch of other stuff and my parcel gets delivered to Singapore with a flat shipping fee.

Sriracha chilli sauce is popularly used in Thai and Vietnamese cooking. If you can't find Sriracha sauce, you can substitute with chilli garlic sauce.
