I've finally found Panko on the shelves of my local grocery stores and had to give it a whirl. Progresso Brand offers Lemon Pepper Panko... the box jumped off the shelf and into my cart so I promptly made a U-turn to the frozen seafood aisle for some cod. It was on sale... SCORE! My local grocery store also has a generic brand of Panko. So far I've tried the Italian style which has Parmesan cheese and is speckled with dried Italian herbs. The Italian style is also good on the fish, but I imagine the Italian style would be really good on pork and chicken. My husband and son both like the Panko crusted fish. We had this Sunday night with frozen crinkle cut fries... I ate too many fries but it was yummy. I don't eat fries often but there is something especially good about the crinkle cut fries.
This is not much of a recipe; it's basically just a technique. I apologize I did not get a "beauty shot" of the fish but my family gobbled it all up before I had an opportunity to take a decent photo.
Heat oil in a skillet (I used two skillets) over medium heat. Pan fry the crumb coated fish for 3 to 5 minutes per side (approximate) until fish is done. Serve immediately.
