Ask For It: Yuki Yama Sushi’s Yama-Mame Recipe


These days, edamame adorns sushi menus as a popular appetizer before the main course. It usually comes dressed with some salt — which is tasty enough on it own. But our tastebuds went wild when we tried the spicy “yama-mame” version at Yuki Yama Sushi.

This unique twist on edamame features a delicious trifecta of flavors: it’s a combination of sweet, salty and spicy — and completely delicious. Find it on the menu at the sushi hot spot on Main Street, or heat up your own with this recipe straight from the source.

P.S. If you have a favorite dish from a Park City restaurant you’d love to learn how to make at home, “ask for it!” Contact us on Facebook or Instagram and tell us what dish you’re dying to recreate.
