Lacy French-Fried Habanero Onion Rings
1 cup flour
2 Tbsp Sweet Orange Habanero seasoning
1 tsp baking powder
¼ tsp salt
1 cup milk
1 Tbsp cooking oil
4 Sweet Spanish onions
fat for deep frying heated to 375° F
In a medium mixing bowl, mix the flour, Sweet Orange Habanero seasoning, and salt.
In a large mixing bowl, beat the egg, milk, and oil until thoroughly blended.
Beat in the dry ingredients until batter is smooth.
Cut off root ends of onions and slip off the loose skins.
Slice onions ¼ inch thick and separate into rings.
Using a long handled fork, immerse a few onion rings at a time into the batter.
Lift out and drain over bowl a few seconds before dropping into heated fat.
Turn only once as they brown.
When rings are golden brown on both sides, lift out and drain on baking sheet covered with several layers of paper towel.
