I have a question about the recipe "Thai Crab and Mango Salad" from mtlabor. What is "basil paste"?

I'm guessing mtlabor might be referring to those little tubes of seasonings that come in various flavors (like ginger paste, sun-dried tomato paste). If you don't want to seek it out, I'd just sub in finely chopped fresh basil.
Thanks. I'll think I'll take your advice.
