What is Panko?

Panko originates from Japan and is a style of breadcrumb traditionally used as a coating for deep-fried foods – such as popular chicken katsu.

It is very common to use Panko in Asian dishes, however in recent years this type of crumb has been adopted more in Western cooking and you’ll see it popping up as the coating of choice in many menus and recipes.

Panko crumbs are made by lightly baking coarse breadcrumbs to give them more ‘crunch’.

What makes Panko different from normal coarse breadcrumbs?

Panko crumbs are made from a crustless white bread that is processed into flakes and then dried. These breadcrumbs area drier and flakier than regular breadcrumbs and therefore  absorb less oil.

Because of this Panko produces lighter and crunchier tasting fried food! Delicious!

On its own, it has very little flavour – but it will add great texture when used as a coating for any dish and will give you a mouth watering CRUNCH factor.

When to use Panko over normal Breadcrumbs

Panko and regular coarse bread crumbs can be used interchangeably – its all down to preference! Where a recipe may call for coarse breadcrumbs, simply substitute for the same amount of panko.
