A note about serious food allergies

Panko is a Japanese-style breadcrumb that is specially made into fine, flaked shapes that provide a crispier, lighter, and airier texture to foods compared to regular breadcrumbs. When you coat mild tilapia fillets with panko and top it with a lemony yogurt-based tartar sauce, you've got yourself a crispy, crunchy, creamy combo that can't be beat!
