Can you fall in love with bread crumbs? I did when I first tried panko, the coarse Japanese bread crumbs that are also airier than Western kinds, and therefore make the most delicate crusts; they also fry to a gorgeous golden brown. I've long used panko for all my breading and found it superior even to homemade crumbs made with good bread. Here, I've flavored panko with thyme, basil, ginger, and chile heat, which makes the crumbs a really exciting ingredient and one you'll use often. The flavored crumbs also store beautifully.
