Here’s Day 2 of the A Week of Onion Rings series which features Hawaiian Sesame Coconut Onion Rings.
(Yesterday’s featured onion rings were Frito Encrusted Onion Rings.)
Crunchy and slightly sweet, these onion rings have a delightful, multi-faceted flavor.
1 Tbsp ground ginger
1/4 cup ground macadamia nuts
1/4 cup ground almonds
2 cups Basic Batter (made with milk)…see the ingredients list for this batter to the right.
4 Tbsp sesame seeds
1 1/2 cups sweetened shredded coconut
Oil for frying
1 very large yellow or Vidalia onion, cut and separated into 3/4 inch rings
Mix the ginger and nuts into the batter. Combine the sesame seeds and coconut in a shallow bowl. Heat 1/2 to 3/4 inches oil in a heavy skillet to 375 degrees. Dip an onion ring into the batter, coating thickly, and dredge in the sesame/coconut mixture. Lay it gently into the oil and cook until golden, turning once. Remove and drain on paper towels. Repeat with remaining rings. You can do 2-3 at a time depending on the size of your skillet, but take care not to crowd the pan or let the temperature drop too much, or the rings will turn out greasy.
- These would go great with a garlicky roast pork sandwich topped with pea sprouts and mango salsa.
- Pineapple yogurt, whipped with a squeeze of fresh lemon or orange juice, would make a yummy dipping sauce.
- Try these with your next Big Kahuna Burger, washed down with a tasty beverage.
Join us tomorrow to read Doug’s new recipe for Cheese and Chive Onion Rings (which uses a beer batter) as part of his Week of Onion Rings Series which celebrates the official start of Summer.
