Panko is Japan’s secret ingredient for crunch. A flaky bread crumb with a coarse texture and jagged edges, panko imparts a delicate crispiness perfect for frying or baking. For nearly a decade, panko has been popping up on the plates of fine dining restaurants. but for the home chef, panko has been difficult to find. Not anymore. Progresso Foods introduces its newest gourmet bread crumb, panko, in three flavors: plain, Italian and lemon pepper.
Parmesan Herb-Crusted Turkey Scaloppine I changed it up a bit to use the Lemon Pepper Panko. It was a good choice. The lemon pepper made the taste pop and was a big hit with everyone.
Panko not only makes a good crispy coating for chicken and fish, but it is great to use as a topping on soups, macaroni and cheese, salads, or anything else you can think of to top.
