Ingredients
Instructions
  1. Cut the top off of a large onion, leaving the root on. This will keep the onion together as you slice it up.
  2. Cut the onion in half lengthwise and peel the outer skin away. Slice the halves into 1/4 thick slices.
  3. Cover the onions with buttermilk, about 1 cup and place into the refridgerator for at least an hour.
  4. In a shallow dish add the flour, Garlic Powder, Salt and Pepper and whisk together until well incorporated.
  5. Drain the buttermilk from the onions and shake off the excess. Place the onions into the flour mixture and toss to coat evenly.
  6. In a cast iron skillet over medium heat add about 1 inch of canola oil and heat to 350 degrees.
  7. Shake off the excess flour and fry the onion strings in small batches until golden brown. Flipping them over in the oil once with a slotted spoon.
  8. Remove the finished onion strings to a paper towel lined tray to allow the excess oil to drain. Be sure to give them a healthy pinch of sea salt after they come out of the oil.
