"Lime Basil": how to use?

  • 3

Got this from my CSA. Has a definite lime smell; kind of reminds me of scented geraniums (lime variety) as well. Any suggestions? It's quite a pronounced difference from standard basil, so I don't think the usual uses of basil are necessarily appropriate.

  1. How about in Thai food? Drunken chicken uses lots of basil, and the lime flavor would taste great.

    1. Anything asian would be good, particularly thai or vietnamese.

      1. I like to make a salsa with tomatillos, onions, jalapenos a few tomatoes and a few lime basil leaves . . . mmmm
