Ideas And Tips:

• If you don’t have a food processor, you can also chop the raw codfish into small pieces.

• Crack the eggs into a small bowl before adding them with other ingredients. You can remove shells or check if the eggs are still good.

• Panko is also known as Japanese breadcrumbs. These breadcrumbs are traditionally used to coat deep-fried dishes such as tonkatsu. Panko differs from regular breadcrumbs in that it is made without any crusts. You can also use regular breadcrumbs.
