    Steps

    1
    Done

    Place the onion slices in a large bowl and pour the buttermilk over them.

    2

    Season with 1 teaspoon each of the black pepper, cayenne, and paprika.

    3
    Done

    Toss lightly, cover, and marinate for 4 to 12 hours, refrigerated.

    In a deep fryer or a saucepan, heat oil to 250°F

    5
    Done

    Mix the remaining tablespoons of black pepper, cayenne, and paprika with the cornmeal and flour, in a large bowl.

    6
    Done

    Strain the onions well in a colander, tossing and pressing down on them to remove liquid, and add them all to the dry mixture, tossing and separating until every onion ring is coated and looks dry.

    7
    Done

    Working with a few rings simultaneously, lift them out of the bowl, shaking off excess coating.

    Fill the fryer basket half full and cook for 3 to 5 minutes until the rings are just past golden brown.

    Make sure not to overcrowd, as this will slow down cooking and make the rings greasy.
