Panko (パン粉?) is a variety of bread crumb used in Japanese cuisine as a crunchy coating for fried foods such as tonkatsu. Panko is made from bread without crusts, thus it has a crisper, airier texture than most types of breading found in Western cuisine[citation needed].
My daughter gets all kinds of stuff from the Azn mkt. Tonight we had udon noodle soup with tofu, poached eggs and other random things in it. Dessert was mochi ice cream. (That is ice cream with a funky dough over it)

Wasn't too bad.

I will ask her about the bread crumbs next time she goes. I could put them in meatloaf maybe? :ohwell:

They really can be used for anything that you would use breading and breadcrumbs for.

AG, I love them and use them any time a recipe calls for breading. They are light and flaky with more flavor!!!!!! I love them!

I just tried them - and I did it wrong. I breaded some shrimp and scallops and put them under the broiler. After about 2 minutes the panko caught fire. I had some glowing embers in between some of the shrimp. :lol: :lol:

I'll have to try this again.

They're good, Yank. Lighter but a bit coarser than ususal bread crumbs. They can be used on pretty much all fried foods; chicken, Fish, Cutlets of all kinds, in casseroles, stuffing, and for adding mass and flavor to ground meats.

I make my own (Mock) with unsalted crackers or oyster crackers, crush with a rolling pin, season them, into a 325 Deg. oven ~10 minutes, and make sure they don't brown. Then Freeze them.

Actually I save all my 2 day old or semi stale bread, dry them in the oven, into the FP, then into coffee cans in the freezer.

If you want the Panko type Bread Crumbs of your own, be sure to use plain White (but natural)American Bread and cut off the Crust.
