Known as Aka Shiso. Red Shiso has more of an anise flavour and is slightly less spicy than the green variety. Famous for it’s use in Japanese pickled plums ‘Umeboshi’, Red Shiso goes well with all fish dishes and also many meat dishes. It is a great garnish for Sashimi and Sushi dishes. Red Shiso is said to have anti-inflammatory properties.
