Although you can use a prepared salsa it is much better to make a quick one on your own. I just cut up some tomatoes, a slice of jalapeno, shallots, garlic, a touch of sugar and salt, olive oil and some lemon juice. I was out of cilantro but I chopped a Kaffir Lime leaf to put in the salsa. And freshly chopped shiso leaves to finish for decoration.
