For Crunchier Crumbs, Try Panko!
What makes panko so special? Kikkoman Panko Bread Crumbs are made fresh from specially baked crustless bread, and the crumbs are larger and lighter, so they coat without “packing” like regular bread crumbs. Foods baked or fried with panko get crisper and stay crisper longer. And panko is so versatile—it’s perfect for fried foods like onion rings, crab cakes or chicken nuggets, and it makes a light and tasty topping for baked foods like casseroles. Kikkoman Panko Bread Crumbs are even good in desserts like fruit fritters, crisps and crumbles.
- Panko is a popular ingredient in Japanese cooking, and a must-have ingredient for Tonkatsu—pork cutlets with a golden-brown crust. In restaurants, tonkatsu is deep-fried, but at home it’s easier and less messy to sauté it in a pan. And don’t forget to serve it with Kikkoman Katsu Sauce!
- Fall is the season for comfort foods like mashed potatoes. Next time, make extra so you can have Panko Crusted Mashed Potato Cakes the next day. Fry them up for a crunchy crust to complement the creamy interior.
- In addition to panko, there’s Kikkoman Tempura Batter Mix to help you give deep-fried seafood, vegetables and poultry a delicate, crispy coating, and the latest taste sensation from Kikkoman—Kara-Áge Soy and Ginger Seasoned Coating Mix. Chicken Kara-áge is one of the most popular dishes in Japan, and Kikkoman has simplified the recipe to make it easier than ever!
