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

    • Eaves would have been nice, better to the ducks than someone else. They beat us last go around but we were way better and Gibson won the game by himself.
    • Wow...Ducks get Eaves from Dallas for a conditional 2nd round pick...pretty cheap rental IMO..where were the Wild on this deal...oh ya we don't have a 2nd round pick 
    • Update:     Put some fresh gas in, sprayed the carb valve with some cleaner and cleaned the filter.  Also adjusted the idle speed up a bit. Runs great again!   Thanks for the advice and help everyone! 
    •   Nope...I think that is an original Bear55 Quote but Yogi Berra would be jealous if he were still alive.   Agree on the Blackhawks...when the season ends they will probably be the favorite to win the cup IMO so it will take an upset by any team to knock them off...would love for the Wild to be the ones to do so....it is getting very interesting as the trade deadline and playoffs time approach!
    • Out here (Virginia) our lakes are dirty and warm, and from what I understand, saugeyes thrive in those conditions. Our walleyes are all stocked since very few of our lakes have suitable spawning habitat and there is little to no natural reproduction.   Really looking forward to catching a saugeye just so I can cross it off my list!

    • Funny, that is the same face I get when I think of people voting for a reality tv star in as president. Worse yet he is some kind of billionaire, like the general public should ever trust one of those guys in public office.
    • More like Yogi the Bear but if I stole his quote my apologies.  Have to get that Chicago gorilla off our back, don't care if they win 4 of the next 5 cups, we just need one and I will be a happy camper.

      I'm not liking that they found some decent youth to play with Towes, we need to pounce before they fill in their gaps with depth and scoring again.
    • I am up to 27 in ND so far.  Waiting for more snow to melt.  Cold weather and deep snow makes the deer really group up out here and makes for easy shed hunting, but is really tough on the deer.  The 4th pic is one from some round bales that the deer were destroying earlier this year.   The biggest I find year to year is generally around that mid 60" range.  And I found that one (first pic) in early Janruary.  So hopes of finding a bigger one this year is low haha.
    • The only Merc I saw in Belize was on a parted out boat 75ft from water. Otherwise it was 70% Yammy's, 15% Honda's, 10% Suzzy's and a 5% hodgepodge of Evinrudes, Tohatsu, ect.......
