Gluten-Free Panko Parmesan Salmon

gluten-free panko parmesan salmon

I was so happy to discover that we started carrying a product at the store: Ian's Gluten-Free Panko. I love panko and I really miss it from my "eating wheat days." I had been struggling to find a good substitute. I tried crumbling up gluten-free crackers and making my own breadcrumbs out of homemade bread, but it just wasn't the same. Lo' and behold, here's my substitute! Here are the ingredients: rice flour, xanthan gum, salt, leavening (sodium bicarbonate, gluconolactone), canola oil, sugar, yeast, ascorbic acid. It does have sugar, but it has 0 grams of sugar per serving, so it's really just a trace.

I immediately thought of one of my favorite salmon recipes: Panko Parmesan Salmon. It's one I came up with myself and it's so easy to make. In fact, I was ready to post the recipe using cracker crumbs, but now I don't have to! I can share the original recipe with you.

02/25/13 Update: Unfortunately, this product did not agree with me. :(  I shouldn't have assumed that the "rice flour" was white rice flour. I'm wondering if it is brown rice flour with the way I reacted to it. It's a disappointment, but I will think of something else to use for this recipe, probably homemade breadcrumbs. I'll post when I figure it out!

05/01/14 Update: I'm pretty sure now that what I was reacting to was the xanthan gum!
