1. Fill a large saucepot with water and bring to a boil
2. While you are waiting for the water to boil, heat a large sauté pan with canola oil to medium heat. Once the oil is hot, add minced garlic to pan. Using a wooden spoon or rubber spatula, move the garlic around the pan until it becomes golden brown. Turn off heat and remove from hot surface. (Do not let the garlic get too brown or burn. If the garlic gets too dark, start over!)
3. Drop the edamame beans in the boiling water. When the soybeans are ready, they will begin to float to the top of the pot. Once the majority of the soybeans have floated to the top, approximately 2 minutes, strain the soybeans from the saucepot.
4. Add the cooked soybeans to the pan with the sautéed garlic and season with kosher salt. Saute on medium heat until the edamame is coated with garlic and salt. Serve immediately.
