I had heard about Panko not too long ago. I wanted to try it because I never liked to use flour or breadcrumbs for frying. They both were to heavy and soggy. I thought that cornmeal relieved this problem until I tried Panko. It makes the outside of the food crunchy but the inside stays moist. Panko is made from the inside of whole wheat bread and not the outside like Italian breadcrumbs. It is traditional in Japanese cooking and can be found in Asian supermarkets or in the international aisle of your supermarket. It has less salt and calories as well. Another bonus. I highly recommend it. Especially when cooking with seafood and fish.
