Episode 115: Spiced Panko Bread Crumbs
Ming combines the ubiquitous Japanese panko bread crumbs with thyme, basil, ginger, black pepper and chile powder to create the master recipe for Spiced Panko Bread Crumbs. Visiting Kotobukiya, a local Japanese market in Cambridge, Massachusetts, Ming shows viewers where to find Panko and how to select the best herbs. Back in the studio, Ming uses these bread crumbs to spice up a few classic comfort foods including Asian Meatloaf, Panko-Crusted Chicken Sandwich, and Panko-Crusted Soft Shell Crab with Dim Sum Dipper. Then, using Spiced Panko Bread Crumbs guest Chef Rene Michelena creates Pork Katsu with a Curried Stir-Fry.
