Thanks for the great ideas, I'm going to try the onions in the freezer to get a little more crunch out of them. But I also would love to get a couple of beer batter recipes to use on onions as well as halibut and cod.... any help?
got this one from one of my favorite websites Cooks.com, it's simple and tasty!!
BEER BATTER FOR FISH
1 c. beer
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 c. corn meal
1 tsp. paprika
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. garlic powder
1 c. flour
In a bowl combine all ingredients and mix well. Let mixture stand about a half hour before using. Dry fish well and dip in batter. Deep fry for best results. This batter can also be used for shrimp and scallops or any other seafood.
This may be the easy way out or sounds like it but we like to buy Bisquick and just mix pancake batter. We also like Vidalia onions sliced thin. Just dip in batter and deep fried at 375 degrees until light golden brown. It`s a simple fix but mighty tasty. If you try it let me know how they were.
combine flour, seasonings, and baking powder. In a measuring cup, whisk together egg and milk. Add milk mixture to dry ingredients, blending well. Dip onion rings into batter, then drip into deep fat at about 365°.
