    Step 4

    Dip each floured ring in beer batter, allow excess batter to drip off (or simply fling it off in the bowl), coat in panko crumbs, then return to baking tray and keep repeating until all remaining rings are coated

  • Step 5

    Heat oil in a relatively deep saucepan on high heat to reach 190 deg celcius (or donut frying temperature). If you don't have a thermometer, simply place a piece of bread dropped into oil as a test. If it turns golden within 12secs the oil is ready

  • Step 6

    Cook onion rings in batches of 4-5 for 1 min or until golden brown. Remember the temperature of the oil drops each time an onion ring is dropped in, so allow small intervals for the oil to come back to 190deg

  • Step 7

    Remove with a slotted spoon, place on a paper towel to soak up excess oil, sprinkle with sea salt flakes and serve with honey mustardy creme fraiche dipping sauce (see below)

    Place all ingredients (creme fraiche, wholegrain mustard, honey, minced garlic) in a small mixing bowl, whisk well, and sprinkle over some freshly cracked pepper (to your taste).

    Either serve as is, or decant into a serving dish to serve alongside your onion rings!
