Corn and Edamame Succotash with Hazelnuts
This recipe proves you can take something commonplace, like the combination of corn and lima beans known as succotash, and make it burst with flavor.
A little bacon and red bell pepper are a good start in enhancing the flavor. Replacing the standard lima beans with edamame gives this version a unique texture. Chopped hazelnuts add crunch. And, a little lemon juice adds the perfect acidity to the dish.
This version of succotash is delicious as a side dish for salmon, either roasted or grilled, and is especially good served alongside the Herb-Stuffed Salmon Roulade recipe found on this site.
Add the parsley, lemon juice and season with the red pepper, salt and pepper. Stir in the bacon and serve.
Makes 8-10 servings.
