    Thai Basil Shrimp fried rice

    Thai Basil or Asian basil is a kind of sweet basil that lends a beautiful flavour to your food when cooked at a very high temperature. Instead of having the distinctive peppery, almost minty flavour of holy basil, Thai basil fried rice showcases the aromatic, liquorice-like flavour of Thai basil. The shrimp only adds to this wonderful dish.
