There are so many descriptive words used to describe Panko, one of our favorites is from Alex Delany, “little, crispy, airy, Japanese miracles”, which is spot on!
Characteristics of Authentic Japanese Panko are very simple; light and lacey sliver shaped crumbs, adding a light and crispy texture, without an “overly oily” taste – a pure and perfect ingredient.
Can you guess our least favorite description? “Hard” or “dense”. Panko should never be hard or dense. If this has been your experience, we’ve got great news for you – it’s not you, it’s the Panko you’re using. Replace your standard panko with an Authentic Japanese Panko and you’ll never associate hard and dense with panko again.
