Japanese food product of the day
Panko [PAHN-koh] are Japanese bread crumbs used in tempura, which are batter-dipped, deep-fried pieces of fish or vegetables (we made it with cucumbers, sweet potatoes and California rolls). The texture is coarser and kind of flaky, and makes a nice crispy crust. It's around $1.25 at Asian markets.
