Shiso (perilla leaves or Japanese basil) is a Japanese herb related to mint that has an earthy flavor similar to basil and anise with hints of citrus. It's commonly found as a garnish for sashimi, in tempura, or with umeboshi (pickled Japanese plums).
In this artisanal paste, shiso leaves are combined with Spanish olive oil, garlic, salt and chili peppers to produce a unique paste full of minty, basil flavor.
Tanaka Soy Sauce is located in Oita Prefecture, one of Japan’s leading production areas of shiso. Their shiso comes from Ueki Farm which was established over 50 years ago and received the Prime Minister's Award for their particular attention to their soil and for producing safe, high-quality shiso leaves.
Suggested use:Use in place of basil such as in pasta sauces (1~1½ tbsp for 1 serving pasta), on carpaccio, as a sauce for fish/chicken/meat, on pizza, in stir fries, as a spread for toast/bagels or drizzled on cheese.
