Alternatively, other sashimi-grade fish such as sea bream, red snapper, hirame or boiled octopus can be used in this recipe.
Like popular basil pesto, this shiso pesto sauce goes great with pasta, toasted baguette or grilled fish.
The pesto sauce easily spoils when excess water is added. After rinsing, make sure to remove the moisture from the shiso leaves with a paper towel. The remaining shiso pesto can be stored in the fridge for about 2 weeks.
