On Japanese social media, there has recently been a big "buzz" trend for "the best way to cook fresh edamame".

While many Japanese usually cook by boiling in water for 5-10 minutes, their recommended way is STEAM it with a PAN.
By steaming it, the sweetness & umami are concentrated in the vegetable itself; unlike the normal way, you do not lose them in boiling water.

2. water ... 1 cup of water (200cc)

2. Prepare edamame in a bowl. Add 1/2 tbsp of salt and using hands, massage so that salt is absorbed inside edamame.

3. Prepare a pan and add water and the salted edamame.

4. Let it heat (high) until it starts boiling.
