Panko Breadcrumbs for Cooking Tuna Bars

These are Japanese breadcrumbs which are much bigger and lighter than regular breadcrumbs. This means they go extra crispy! You’ll find them in nearly all supermarkets/grocery stores in the Asian section. You can use regular breadcrumbs if you cannot source Panko Breadcrumbs.
