I know some of you are not familiar with Panko bread crumbs. I have found them on the Asian food isle of the grocery store near the soy sauce. Sometimes you can find them with plain bread crumbs. I shop at Kroger, Alberstons and WalMart and have found them at all 3 of those stores. I am in Texas.
I like the Panko because they keep food crunchy when baked unlike plain bread crumbs that are only crunchy if you fry them.
Please comment and let us know where you find Panko in your region.
