Step 1

Heat the salt, chili powder, and pepper flakes in a small dry skillet set over medium heat, stirring until hot and aromatic, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the sugar. Set aside.

Boil the edamame pods in salted water until tender, about 8 minutes. Drain in a colander and pat dry. Toss the edamame pods with the chili-salt and serve warm with lemon wedges to squeeze on top.
