What is Panko?

Panko is a Japanese breadcrumb. It is much flakier than your typical bread crumb making items coated and fried with them come out with a much lighter and crispier coating because it doesn’t absorb much grease.  The biggest difference between panko and your typical supermarket breadcrumb is that panko is made from a crust-less bread.

Panko is widely popular throughout Asia and is growing in popularity in the United States. Not only can it be used as a coating for fried foods, it is also great for crab cakes and meatloaf.
