Panko is a type of crisp Japanese breadcrumb made from an electrically baked white bread which is flaked rather than ground. The texture of panko makes it great for fried food because it absorbs less oil than conventional breadcrumbs, so you get a lighter, crisper coating. Panko is often used in Korea, China, and Thailand and other Asian cuisines, especially to coat chicken and seafood such as prawns and squid. Panko is available in large supermarkets and specialist Asian markets and retailers.
