- (Japanese) Panko Breadcrumbs
- A variety of breadcrumb used traditionally in Japanese cuisine, but also quite often found in French cuisine. It is made from bread without crusts, therefore giving it an airier and crisper texture, making it ideal for really crunchy coatings for fried foods. Available in Asian stores and sometimes in larger supermarkets. If you can’t find it, use standard breadcrumbs.
- Fruit or vegetables cut into thin matchsticks or very fine shreds, strictly 1-2mm wide and 3cm long.
