Fresh green soybeans, called edamame or sweet beans, are a great addition to this classic American dish, where they stand in for the traditional lima beans. The succotash is wonderful as it is or topped with grilled shrimp, salmon or chicken.

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen or fresh shelled edamame (see Ingredient Note)
