- Make anise-seed salt: Toast anise seed in small skillet over medium heat until aroma becomes slightly caramel-like. Let cool, then grind to powder in spice grinder. Combine with sea salt in small to medium bowl.
- Fill large saucepan with salted water, and bring to boil. Add edamame beans to saucepan and cook until bright green and crisp-tender, 2 to 5 minutes. Pour into colander and drain thoroughly. (If not serving immediately or serving cold, run cold water over beans to stop cooking.) Pat dry with paper towel.
- When ready to serve, transfer edamame beans to serving bowl and sprinkle with a few large pinches of anise salt to taste. Keep remaining anise salt in airtight container in cool place.
