2-3 large onions | cut across into thick rounds, rings separated1 ¾ cups flour | ½ cup cornstarch |2 tsp smoked paprika |2 tsp Old Bay seasoning |1 tbsp dry mustard |1 tbsp baking powder |2 tsp honey |12 oz beer |Canola Oil |Kosher Salt |
In a small bowl whisk together honey & beer. In a large bowl, mix all dry ingredients & 1 tbsp kosher salt. Add beer mixture to flour mixture & whisk until smooth. Let sit for 10 minutes.
Pour canola oil into skillet, to a depth of 2”. Heat over medium high heat until thermometer reads 375 degrees without touching the bottom of the pan. Prepare a layer of paper towels or kitchen towels on a baking sheet or platter to rest the cooked onion rings on. Prepare a very small bowl of kosher salt.
Dip onion rings in batter, shaking off excess liquid before carefully placing into hot oil. ***It is best to work in batches to ensure oil stays hot***. When one side of the onion ring turns golden, carefully flip it with metal tongs or a fork. When both sides are golden, remove from oil & place on paper towels. Dust with kosher salt. Repeat process until all onion rings are cooked. Serve immediately!
