Shiso Leaves Green

Shiso Leaves Green is called ‘Ōba’ in Japan. And there is no fish dish imaginable that this product cannot be served with. Take a nice, fresh piece of tuna. Dip it in Japanese soy sauce and wrap a Shiso leaf around it. A true taste sensation. The leaf has a very mild taste but is definitely present.

Oorsprong

This beautiful, green leaf originally comes from Japan, but is now also grown in the Netherlands. In the Dutch language, the tasty plant is usually called Shiso, but the Japanese call the green variety aojiso, aoba (“green leaf”), ōba or aoshiso and often use it as a seasoning with sashimi (raw sliced fish).
