I just checked my bag and it is 450grams = 16 ounces. So, It seems I paid a fair price since that is just a bit over what you pay for 16 ounces Katie. And YEP, I'm bitten by the Asian Market bug. Love it! There are a few more Asian Markets in town, so I plan on hitting those as well to see what they have to offer! This is cool!

Oh, and I fried some chicken tenders last night in the Panko bread crumbs. INCREDIBLE! It's unreal how much of a difference they make. We are absolutely hooked!

Did some fried green tomatoes in panko this summer. Thought I'd died and gone to heaven. Wait until you try breading some pork chops in panko. Pure piggy delight.

Fried green tomatoes....and pork! Oh MY! I can't wait to try all of this! I'm so glad you guys here at DC advocated using Panko bread crumbs!

It's always fun to read about someone's first trip into the Asian market, as it reminds me so much of my first trip there. Now- the Asian markets are the only places I go to buy my rice, my chinese flat noodles, soy, rice wine vinegar, and many other ingredients. Asian markets often carry a lot of produce that is used in Asia but isn't available here often.

I go there and can buy dried shiitakes by the pound for unbelievable prices, in additoin to dried chiles, and an unimaginable variety of premade sauces, chili paste, etc. It's really incredible how much great stuff they can pack into such tiny stores.

We have a HUGE Asian (actually, "International") market about an hour's drive away, & dear husband always has to accompany me to be the "voice of reason" - lol!!!! Otherwise, I could easily drop untold dollars there in a heartbeat.

In addition to aisles & aisles of canned, bottled, & dry goods in unbelievable variety, their refrigerated/freezer sections are like a world food tour (especially the meats & seafood). The produce department fills about a third of the store, & is just as mind-boggling; & the seafood department hosts tanks of live eels, tilapia, & an iced case of fish, many of which I'd probably have to look up to identify before I thought of buying them - lol!!

Since a favorite Japanese restaurant of ours is across the street, we'll sometimes take an after-dinner walk-thru of the market just as if we were touring a museum or something - lol!!

I am a big fan of my local "Saigon Market"! I can spend a long time in there browsing,
and have become a regular customer.
Bean sprouts, fresh herbs, fresh veggies (limited selection), fresh peppers...
all for about half the price. Dried shiitakes and fungus for dirt cheap!
Fish sauce! I am addicted, nuff said.
Noodles... $1.99 at Kroger's, 79 cents there.

There is a huge Asian supermarket on the other side of town that has an amazing fresh seafood section. Rows upon rows of big white coolers, all stuffed with things from the sea. I admit, I like my fish filleted not flopping, LOL!

Oh, I can get canned coffee drinks there for $1.00, same thing in other markets.. $2.99!

Panko is awesome stuff for breading. Even use it on my mac and cheese ala Alton. I still use trad bread crumbs for my meatloaf though.

Remember this too.. if you are cooking for lactose intolerant friends, Panko crumbs are lactose free(at least all I have seen)...

Not meaning to change the subject too much but when I was doing Atkins, I learned that ground up pork rinds (Gratons, Chicharones) make a really good breading. Sounds weird but it works.
