Panko

5 posts in this topic

I just bought some Panko breading for fish. This will be my first time using it any suggestions on how to prepare it. I will be using a deep fryer. Thanks for the help!!

Seasoned Flour dredge

Egg Wash

Panko with seasoning mixed in

Then maybe a sprinkle of seasoning on top after the panko dip.

The flavor of Panko is rather bland but it gives a great crunch. Be sure to give your fillets a bit of salt after they come out of the fryer. They will be great.

Another good crunch ingredient is polenta, or yellow corn grits. I use Bob's Red Mill brand. You can also substitute corn flour for white flour. Add those and whatever spices you like to a ziploc bag and shake for easy coverage and leave open to dry when done to reuse it.

I like to cut panko 50-50 with seasoned bread crumbs then add some salt, pepper, and cajun seasoning - flour, egg wash, then mix - fry...

Or lay your filets on a baking dish and sprinkle them with lemon pepper, a little cajun and panko then pop em under the broiler

Get some seasoned breading mix (not corn meal) like Gary Roach's or Shorelunch or jason Boser's... Make a real soupy beer batter (like the consistancy of a melted milk shake).

Put som seasoned flour or some of the breading mix in a bowl. Roll fillets in dry seasoned flour 1st before dipping in beer batter, this will keep the batter sticking to the fillet instead of falling off. Immediatley dip the floured fillet in the beer batter allowing all excess batter to drip off, then immediatley roll till completly covered in Panko crumbs. Deep fry till golden and floating. Set in a collander to allow excess oil to drip off the fillets. Lightly re-season the fillet right away when warm ( I just use a pinch of salt)...

The best, crunchiest battered fish you will ever eat! And I do not prefer battered fish for the most part! Give it a try! I serve it with a nice homemade tarter sauce, but put a dish of cocktail sauce out there too... you'll be amazed at how good that tastes with this fish! Some prefer to squeeze a little fresh lemon on the fillets before eating... I do too!

Good Luck!

Ken

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
