Freshly Ground Black Pepper
Cut the top of the
Sweet Onion (1)
Lace the onion cut-side down, and, using a sharp knife, make 1/2-inch cuts in a circular motion to create "petals." Flip the onion over and, using your hands, begin coaxing apart its layers.
In a large bowl, combine
All-Purpose Flour (2 1/2 cups)
Cayenne Pepper (1 tsp)
Paprika (2 Tbsp)
Dried Oregano (1/2 tsp)
Salt (to taste)
Garlic Powder (1 tsp)
Freshly Ground Black Pepper (to taste)
Place the onion cut-side down in the bowl, cover with a plate, and shake to coat onion and each "petal."
Meanwhile, in a separate medium bowl, mix large
Large Eggs (2)
Milk (1 cup)
. Dip onion in egg wash cut-side down; shake off excess egg wash and return onion to flour mixture to coat a second time. Shake off any excess flour.
In a deep-fryer or a heavy Dutch oven, heat
Corn Oil (as needed)
to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C), adding enough oil so that the entire onion will be able to float.
Meanwhile, in a separate bowl, combine dip ingredients until well-mixed. Set aside.
In the deep-fryer or Dutch oven, add the onion cut-side down in the oil for 2-3 minutes, then carefully flip the onion and allow it to fry for an additional 2-3 minutes or until the batter is golden brown.
Move it to a plate covered in paper towels to drain off excess oil and season with a little
Seasoned Salt (1 tsp)
Serve immediately with sauce.
