Slice the strawberries and place into the cooled syrup along with the basil. - Set to one side to infuse.
Make a meringue mix, spread over a thin baking tray topped with flaked almonds and cook at 140c until set and crunchy.
Slice the arctic roll and serve with the marinated strawberries and shards of meringue. Finish with fresh basil sprigs.
