Ingredients

  • Canola or peanut oil, for frying
  • 1 tablespoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 1 tablespoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried basil
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup cornmeal
  • 3 large yellow onions, thinly sliced in rounds

Directions

Watch how to make this recipe.

In a high-sided saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees F. 

 Mix together the cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, basil, oregano, black pepper and sea salt in a small bowl. 

 Whisk together the flour and cornmeal in a medium bowl. Toss the onion rings in the flour mixture to coat. Deep-fry the onion rings in 2 batches until crispy and lightly golden, 3 to 5 minutes. Drain on a paper towel for 1 minute, and then transfer to a large bowl. Add a large pinch of the spice mixture, and toss the onion rings to evenly distribute the seasoning. 

 Season with more salt if desired, and serve immediately.
