Shiso Shrimpy and Grilled!

 

shiso leavesAdventures in the kitchen can only be accomplished if you spread your wings and buy stuff that is “unfamiliar”.  I recently stopped in at my local Asian Market and I happened upon a lot of interesting produce…one thing namely were some Shiso Leaves.  I wasn’t sure what to do with them, but I threw them in my basket.  As usual, I went home and Googled what the heck I had just purchased!  It seems like these leaves are often used in soups; however, after reading the description of the flavor, I had to try this in a pesto.
