I see you also use those fantastic Panko bread crumbs pacanis...far superior to those gummy regular ones. Yummmmm, love that tender crunch.

I still keep regular ones around for a lighter breading, like on perch, but I love panko on this and shrimp.

I did look for the Panko while shopping today. I didn't find them yet. I'll keep looking. Not by the seafood accessories, just batter mixes and dips.

I did manage to find a 1.5# package of nice size scallops for $10 though. I'm sure I can figure something to do with them. Ideas welcome!

I misrememebred the other day, Z. The panko crumbs I have are Progresso, not Gia Russo. Just in case you want to ask your store for them.

My scallops see nothing but a little S&P and a hot skillet with EVOO and butter in it. Two minutes one side, one minute the other

I put a large "handful" of the scallops in a little pan with a stick of butter and garlic. MMMmmmmm. So good, I did it again.

Scallops are a great seafood.

I usually use Progresso panko and regular crumbs but the last time I replaced them with 4C which are pretty good. BUT stale bread is stale bread!! LOL Just kidding.

Panko is great used on scallops. I did some this past summer. Breaded the scallops and sauteed in a little butter. By the time the panko is browned the scallops are ready to go. Loved 'em.

When they first hit my area I bought Kikkoman, but Progressive is a more popular brand name around here and that's probably why more stores have started carrying panko. And that's a good thing
