For extra crispy battered onion rings, dredge the onion rings in flour before dipping them into batter.

  • Portion size 4 servings



Preheat deep-fryer to 375°F (190°C) and oven to 250°F (120°C).

In bowl, whisk flour, 1 1/2 teaspoons (7 mL) salt and cayenne. Whisk in beer until smooth. Let stand for 15 minutes.

Meanwhile, peel onion. Cut into 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick slices. Separate into rings.

In deep-fryer or deep heavy-bottomed pot, pour in enough oil to come at least 2 inches (5 cm) up side. Heat to 375°F (190°C) or until a 1-inch (2.5 cm) cube of bread turns golden in 20 seconds. Using fork, dip 4 or 5 onion rings into batter; cook in oil for about 1 minute or until golden brown, turning halfway through. Using slotted spoon, transfer to paper towel-lined baking sheet. Keep warm in 250°F (120°C) for up to 1 hour. Repeat with remaining onions.

Sprinkle with salt to taste.
