Are you ready? I’m happy to announce my first sponsored GIVEAWAY on LookyTasty!

I recently received a gift pack from General Mills through MyBlogSpark: a box of Progresso Lemon Pepper Panko for me to review and an autographed copy of Michael Chiarello’s Bottega: Bold Italian Flavors from the Heart of California’s Wine Country. Here’s my gift pack, but one lucky reader will receive one as well. (Details on giveaway below.)

Panko bread crumbs are made from the soft, tender centers of the bread. They are large and flaky, and absorb less oil and are much lighter and crunchier than traditional bread crumbs. You can bake them, fry them, or use it for a coating or as a topping. Totally delicious! I’ve used Japanese panko bread crumbs before. I actually prefer it over regular bread crumbs. I’ve never tried Progresso panko bread crumbs and definitely have not tried anything other than plain ones.

Progresso recently came out with a Lemon Pepper Panko to join their line of panko bread crumbs. Lemon pepper panko bread crumbs are made with lemon zest, black pepper, and spices and adds a flavorful crunch to your regular bread crumb recipes. Progresso crispy panko bread crumbs are also available in Plain and Italian Style.

Chef Michael Chiarello is an Emmy-award winning TV chef and cookbook author. He is the tastemaker behind Bottega Napa Valley Restaurant, NapaStyle and Chiarello Family Vineyards, and appears on The Cooking Channel and Top Chef Masters only on Bravo. He’s helping cooks everywhere use Progresso’s panko to make flavorful, flawless recipes. Visit the Progresso website for Chef Michael Chiarello’s signature recipes and useful tips for cooking with panko bread crumbs.

I browsed through the Signature Recipes and I plan on making Chef Michael Chiarello’s Crispy Seafood Salad. Panko crusted shrimp on a bed of greens, along with a citrus vinaigrette or dressing sounds delightful! I plan on making it dairy-free and will cook the shrimp in the oven instead of frying. I post about it soon once I make it, so stay tuned for that. For now, I would like to share information on the giveaway!
