Not only is edamame one of the healthiest things you can snack on, it's also supremely versatile. Because its flavor isn't too overwhelming, you can mix it into a ton of dishes for an easy nutritional boost.
This shrimp succotash is no exception. Even with a little bit of bacon and melted butter thrown in, it still makes for a tasty and healthy lunch you can whip up with ease.

In a large sauté pan, cook bacon, onion, garlic, and peppers over medium heat for 5 minutes.
Cook edamame according to package directions. Add to pan along with corn and cook 3 minutes more. Set aside.
Place shrimp on skewers, brush with melted butter and sprinkle with paprika. Grill 2 minutes per side.
Plate succotash mixture, top with shrimp and add fresh basil and goat cheese if desired.
Note: If you don't want to grill your shrimp you can easily cook them in the pan. Also, feel free to substitute your favorite bean for the edamame.
