Basil is an annual species in the family of flowering plants and is used as a spice. The most common basil, grown in the Mediterranean region, is the one most often used for seasoning meat and fish dishes, spaghetti, salads, vegetables and soups. It can be either fresh or dried during use. Basil is also an important ingredient in pesto - a basil-based sauce with olive oil, garlic, parmesan cheese and pine nuts. You should not confuse ordinary basil with the Thai variety - Thai basil. Thai basilica differs markedly in both taste and appearance. It also has a strong licorice-like scent. Thai basil has an important role in Asian cooking and if it only says basil in an Asian recipe, it can be assumed that it is the Asian variant that is meant and it can not be replaced with ordinary basil.
