daily bliss: panko

Panko! A fun word to say! A crispy, flaky addition to a delicious winter greens gratin! New culinary territory!

Panko is a Japanese style bread crumb that is apparently specially processed to achieve maximum flakiness. Mixed with a little melted butter, these make a super crispy, faux-fried topping.

Anyone have any ideas for other uses of panko? I'm threatening to try panko crusted tofu cutlets (and thoroughly scaring G).


  1. Looks good to me..I would do the shrimp like they have in the picture! Tilapia fish would be good too!

  2. Isn't it fun to discover and experiment with new ingredients? I use my panko for breading fish and chicken and for meatloaves. None of this really applies to your way of eating, though!

    ps my capcha is "autrett" which sounds awfully appropriate in a literary kind of way!
