Here is my second installment on the beauty of pre-browned Panko crumbs! I posted Panko Crusted Salmon a couple weeks ago and I am still in awe over what I can do with these things!
When I say these taste just like your favorite restaurant Fish and Chips, I am not kidding. ‘These taste like your favorite restaurant Fish and Chips!’ They are crunchy and tender and I can hardly wait to make them again. I served them with french fries (the frozen variety) but next time will serve with homemade. Also would like to make homemade tarter using greek yogurt – man is there anything you can’t do with that stuff! I’m addicted! So stay tuned for those two recipes..but for now, just straight up fish…and frozen chips. (Can I really call this Fish and Chips if the chips are store bought? Well yes, yes I can.)
Mr. Laughing Spatula did the dirty dipping work. Couple glasses of Chardy and he is putty in my hands…oh the things he does for me on a wine buzz….
These require a triple dipper – flour, egg than Panko. Set up 3 bowls for your work station and it goes really quickly – well it did for him. I just watched and poured…love my job!
NOTES: You are gonna get a bit messy – be sure to take a sip of your wine before you start or you will get your glass all gunky…this is the most important advice I have. Oh, and make sure your oven is preheated for this recipe, it makes a big difference.
