Shiso Katsuo Ninniku (紫蘇にんにく), more commonly known as pink pickled garlic, certainly brightens a plate. 

The pink pickled garlic gets its color from red shiso, which is used extensively for pickling. 

After trawling the Internet I can't seem to find a recipe, however you can pick up vacuumed packed packets from china town. 

The garlic has a subtle, almost sweet taste - perfect as a snack or paired with cheese!
