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

  1. In a high-sided saucepan, heat the oil over medium heat until it reaches 350 degrees F. 
  2.  Mix together the cayenne, paprika, garlic powder, basil, oregano, black pepper and sea salt in a small bowl. 
  3.  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. 
  4.  Season with more salt if desired, and serve immediately.
