1.In a bowl combine, olive oil, garlic, basil and kosher salt.
2.Lay mozzarella slices on a plate and pour garlic mixture over the top. Turn to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours.
3.The breading process is three step. In one bowl place flour, in a second bowl place egg, in the the third bowl combine the panko and plain dry bread crumbs.
4.Heat about 1 inch of oil in a pan over medium heat.
5.Dip each piece of mozzarella in the flour, then egg and finally press into the bread crumbs to coat completely.
6.Drop a few bread crumbs into the oil, if they sizzle, it is hot enough. Fry breaded mozzarella for 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.
The addition of the flour and the plain dry breadcrumbs in this recipe really helped create the crunchy crust I was looking for.
