This aromatic leaf is often compared to a cross between mint and basil and sage. In Japanese cuisine, Ooba or shiso are often added to sushi, sashimi and noodles. Release its aromas by crushing or tearing. Pro Tip: clap the leaf between your hands! Try substituting mint with ooba in cocktail recipes or frying in tempura batter.
