Story Behind this Recipe
My parents gave us a lot of shiso leaves. This is a recipe I came up when I thought I should use them up before they went bad.
Add plenty of shiso leaves, as much as you have. You can add up to about 40 leaves. It's also delicious if you sprinkle ichimi togarashi (red chili pepper powder), or chop up a couple of umeboshi plums and stir fry them in.
