Makes 8

The Japanese bread crumbs called panko, available at most specialty markets, make a crisp exterior for these pan-fried croquettes. You can also use plain white bread crumbs. Serve with a simple arugula salad dotted with toasted walnuts.

1 pound fresh goat cheese
1 cup panko
2 tablespoons olive oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
1. Form the goat cheese into 8 balls. Flatten them slightly.

2. Sprinkle the panko on a shallow plate. Roll the cheese in the crumbs.

3. In a nonstick skillet, heat the olive oil over medium-low heat. When it is hot, add the croquettes. Cook for 2 minutes on a side, sprinkling with salt and pepper, or until they are lightly browned all over. Jonathan Levitt
