Beer Batter Onion Rings
Makes 4 Servings
*2 large yellow onions, preferably Vidalia
*1 cup all-purpose flour, plus additional for dusting
*1/2 tsp. paprika
*1 cup beer
*Vegetable oil for frying
*Kosher salt
1Peel onions and cut crosswise into 1/3-inch slices. Separate slices into rings.
2Place flour in a bowl and mix in paprika. Make a well in the center, pour the beer into the well and whisk to combine. Strain batter through a sieve into a clean bowl, cover and let stand for 1 hour.
3Dust onion rings with a bit of flour, shaking off excess. Coat them with the batter.
4Heat 2-3 inches of oil in a deep saucepan. Working in batches, fry the onion rings in oil until they are golden brown. Use a slotted spoon to transfer to paper towels to drain. Sprinkle immediately with salt to taste.
