This actually is due to too much sunlight. If your Basil is in containers you can keep them in am sun and afternoon shade. If they are planted out you can add a shade cloth during the hottest part of the day.
This type of plant stress can make them more vulnerable to pests, so keep an eye out for them and treat with Neem Oil if needed.

You can pinch off these leaves and remove.
