- The edamame must be thawed before removing the shell. To accelerate this process, you can blanche the pods in a pot of gently simmering water for about three minutes.

- For an attractive presentation, cut the red pepper and red onion into small dices, about the size of a pinky nail. Keep them smaller than the edamame beans, which are the star of the recipe.

- For added elegance, cut the green onions on a bias, or diagonally.
Be creative and add different vegetable like carrots, broccoli and yellow or orange bell peppers.
