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.
