This is one of the quickest healthiest snacks you can make for a crowd! It's a great party food because it sits well at room temperature!!
Cook frozen edamame in the pods in salted boiling water until tender for 5 minutes; drain (alternately, microwave on high for about 4 minutes)
Heat 1 tablespoon bacon fat (alternately, you can use olive oil) in a cast iron pan over high heat; add the drained edamame (being careful to keep your distance as the bacon fat may splatter a bit if the beans are moist) and cook, stirring often, to char the outsides.
Sprinkle in your spices and stir the edamame to coat well; squeeze in some lemon juice and serve.
