Green perilla. Green shiso. A typical herb in Japanese cuisine, perilla has a distinctive flavour, vaguely reminiscent of rue, and is rich in carotene, vitamin C and iron. Select leaves that are fragrant and have a fresh green colour. Perilla is used chopped as a seasoning in chilled tofu, as a garnish with salads and sashimi, and in deep-fried dishes.
