I like it for baking, not frying.

OP says "I get quite excited when I finally find "beer battered" cod in the store." THAT phrasing makes me think she/he is talking about grocery stores and the frozen food aisle. If I'm correct, then I agree with OP. Panko crusted frozen anything is dreadful. But so is frozen bread crumb covered anything. If they have frozen beer battered fish, I've never seen it. And I sure don't wanna eat it.
Yes it does make crunchy topping! I used it yesterday for chicken parm casserole. The topping was panko, Parmesan, garlic powder and melted butter....it came out wonderfully crunchy.

I like it a lot. I make a chicken divan casserole that I used to use bread crumbs for, but then I switched to panko and it keeps the topping crunchier. I've used it with meatloaf, and pretty much anywhere I'd use bread crumbs.

Mac and cheese is topped with buttered panko before baking at our house. We tried it once and never looked back.

I personally like Panko crumbs as they add more texture to things like macaroni and cheese. I buy them in bulk for $0.87/lb so they are very reasonable.

I do my fried shrimp in Panko (floured, egg-washed and pankoed)...makes it crispy and lovely! I do fried fish in seafood breading...much smoother. Not a fan of battered seafood....mainly, because I don't deep=fry much at home...too messy.

I don't.

Plain battered shrimp are wonderful.
I'm not sure what is in "Panko", and I don't care. It makes me think of eating something dipped in sand.
Thoroughly and completely disgusting, IMO.
Panko is simply a type of breadcrumb. A little crispier than the regular type, so many people prefer it.

Canít believe you donít know that. Theyíve been around for a long time.
