And here is a link to Chef's Panko Tips
We just used these super flavorful breadcrumbs to make these delicious Fish Tacos. They packed such a great punch of lemon flavor and a kick of heat from the pepper that I wish they had come out with these sooner. I have been using plain panko breadcrumbs for a while now for the extra crispiness they add, so I am super excited about the flavored versions. They make everything so crispy and crunchy I use them all the time for my Chicken Parmesan. They have a coarser texture which help make them so crispy, whether baking, frying or broiling. The Progresso Panko is available in Plain, Italian and the Lemon Pepper, can't wait to try the Italian!!
To enter to win, please go to the Progesso® website and than leave me a comment about what recipe you would like to try using the panko breadcrumbs. I'll select the winner at random after midnight on Monday, January 31st.
