Shiso Leaves Green and Kaffir Lime Leaves are used here. Shiso Leaves, also known as Japanese basil, popular in Asia and usually used with raw fish, are crushed, and homemade almond orgeat, London coconut oil, and a few drops of absinthe are added. The fragrant Kaffir Lime is also used, with its characteristic dark and light green paired leaves. Very popular in Asia, it has a scent similar to lemongrass and is known for its calming effect.
