Is there an ingredient you couldn’t live without in your kitchen? It’s hard to name just one, especially for a professional kitchen. However, one ingredient often overlooked and misunderstood, is one of the most versatile – Authentic Panko! Because of this tiny crumb’s never-ending possibilities, it might be the one you can’t live without.
Authentic Japanese Panko is hands-down one of the most versatile ingredients. Unfortunately, many think it’s only used in Asian cuisine. Nothing could be further from the truth! Authentic Panko is a better option than standard breadcrumbs in any application. Authentic Panko is incredibly versatile, from starters to desserts and for every type of cuisine you can imagine. Panko is an excellent choice to add texture and improve the appearance of any menu item, from Chicken Parmesan to Crispy Fish Sandwiches and even desserts.
Not All Panko is Authentic Panko
You might have noticed we keep repeating “Authentic Panko”. The word “Authentic” is essential. Not all Panko brands are Authentic Japanese Panko. It isn’t authentic if you’ve ever experienced a hard, round, dense panko. An Authentic Panko is light and lacey with a sliver-shaped crumb that will enhance your menu items by adding a light crispy texture without being oily, heavy, or overpowering. Panko should highlight your coated protein with a light crispy texture and not fight it with a hard, crunchy texture.
Experience The Versatility of a Truly Authentic Panko
Lighter texture and better surface coverage are two reasons an Authentic Panko is a perfect alternative (and replacement) for standard breadcrumbs. An Authentic Panko will also:
Add Better Texture – An Authentic Panko adds texture, enhancing the foods natural flavor. Perfect for oven and deep-frying, as a top coating for au gratins and even desserts, or as a binder, Panko will provide a light crispy texture that’s never hard and dense.
Improve Appearance – Using an Authentic Panko as a breading creates a delicate and delicious crispiness that will provide fried foods a lighter coating that stays crispy longer, making your coated items look larger without an over-breaded and oily appearance (or taste!)
Customizable Flavor – Panko is flavor neutral, making it perfect for enhancing the natural taste of the food or enhancing the flavor by creating your unique spices and flavors. Either way, it’s an excellent choice without the “bready” flavor commonly associated with standard breadcrumbs.
