      Moto's Kitchen: Recipe 36 - Shiso Granita

      Wednesday, July 23

      Today in Moto's Kitchen we are making a summer treat: Shiso Granita! Granita is a classic Italian shaved ice, but we are spicing up this recipe with some Japanese fusion. By combining the light, fragrant flavors of shiso and lime, this dish is a perfect way to refresh and relax after a hot day in the sun. Shiso is a Japanese herb, typically used as a garnish on dishes like sushi or sashimi. It has a freshness and fragrance similar to that of mint that pairs very nicely with citrus flavors like lemon or lime. Enjoy!  Start Video
