Depending on how many people you are having, making your own Hush Puppies is very easy and the results would be much better.

Here's link for you:

Thanks Jan, I was way off the mark with the hush puppies, I was thinking of a batter mix like we use for battered sav's

why panko? a google search showed me that it is a japanese type of breadcrumb. Does something about it make for particularly good fish? is it easy to work with?

i just made fried Tilapia 2 nights ago.I made a mix of flour and cornmeal then added some granulated garlic,dried thyme leafs,dried parsley and salt and pepper.The egg mix was 2 eggs beaten with a little milk.
Dredged the fillets in the flour then the eggs then back into flour.
Then I fried them with about an 1 inch of canola in my electric fry skillet at 375 once on each side till crisp and golden.The fillets where only about 1/2 inch thick so I wanted the oil hot to quickly brown the crust without over cooking the fish.It was really good.
