Japanese panko bread crumbs are used. You can also use homemade bread crumbs, but the appearance won’t be the same. Panko bread crumbs are easy to find at the grocery store, so they are readily available.
Usually, panko-breaded foods are deep fried, because they will turn out very crispy. However, today, we are going to learn how to make crispy, golden panko shrimp by baking them in the oven.

- 1) 12 Fresh Shrimp with tail on.
- 2) 120ml of Bread crumbs

- 4) 1 Egg
- 5) ½ tsp Curry powder
