Story Behind this Recipe

A long time ago I went to a restaurant where you smash up a crab with a hammer and eat it.
That's where I first had these, and I was moved by how delicious they were.
I remembered them after a couple of years and tried making them loosely based on what I remembered. It came out very well.
I make this whenever I have fresh edamame.
