Japanese Panko Bread Crumbs

Panko is the cream of bread crumbs
It's hard to believe there's a better bread crumb, but the Japanese have definitely cornered the market.
Panko crumbs are made from wheat bread, but they are flaky and lighter than other bread crumbs. Practically any food you fry that is panko-coated turns out crisp and airy - unlike any taste sensation you have eperienced with regular crumbs
You can substitute panko bread crumbs in just about any recipe calling for regular bread crumbs.
We especially liked the way panko crumbs transformed quick pan-sauteed fish from simply good to absolutely outstanding!!! Once you've tried Panko Bread Crumbs, you may never fry with an ordinary bread crumb again.
Crispy Dijon-Glazed Fillets
4 servings
2 tablespoons reduced-fat mayonnaise
2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
3/4 cup panko crumbs (Japanese bread crumbs)
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1 tablespoon finely minced fresh parsley,
4 tilapia fillets (6 to 8 ounces each), or other mild white fish fillets
4 lemon slices, optional garnish
In a small bowl, mix together the mayonnaise and mustard. Set aside. Begin heating the oil in an extra-deep, 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat.
Place the panko crumbs, salt, pepper and parsley (if using) on a large plate, and stir to mix well. Spread a thin coating of the mayonnaise mixture over both sides of each fish fillet, using about 1 tablespoon total for each fillet. Place the fillets on the plate one at a time, pressing the fillets into the crumb mixture and turning over to coat the fish well on both sides. (Press additional crumbs into any bare areas.) Discard any crumbs that may be left over.
Place the coated fillets in the hot oil. Cook until the fish is lightly browned on the first side, about 3 to 4 minutes. Turn and cook until the fish is light brown on the second side and opaque throughout, about 3 to 4 minutes more.
Place the fillets on serving plates, and garnish with a lemon slice, if desired. Serve immediately and Enjoy.
Start to finish: 15 minutes
