  • 1 (5 oz) box Louisiana Fish Fry Products Air Fryer Chicken Seasoned Coating Mix
  • 1 large sweet onion
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour, divided
  • 1 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. pepper
  • 1/2 cup buttermilk
  • 1 egg
  • cooking spray
  • 1/4 cup plain nonfat Greek yogurt
  • 2 Tbsp. mayonnaise
  • 1 Tbsp. sriracha, plus more to taste
  • 1 tsp. fresh lemon juice
  • 1 tsp. Dijon mustard


    Slice onions into 1/2” rounds and separate the rings. Arrange three bowls on work surface. Add 1/4 cup flour, salt and pepper to first bowl, stirring to combine. In second bowl, whisk buttermilk and egg until combined. Whisk in remaining flour until smooth. Add seasoned coating mix to third bowl. Working in batches, coat each onion ring in flour mixture, then dip in buttermilk mixture, letting excess drip back into bowl. Cover onion evenly with seasoned coating mix, letting excess fall back into bowl. Spray each onion ring all over with cooking spay and place in single layer in air fryer basket. Cook each batch at 400 degrees F for 10-12 minutes, until onions are tender and coating is crispy. Depending on air fryer, you may want to flip onions halfway through for maximum crispiness. While onions cook, prepare dipping sauce. Combine yogurt, mayonnaise, sriracha, lemon juice, and mustard in small bowl. Taste and adjust spiciness with more sriracha. Serve with crispy onion rings.


    Reheat Fried Foods

    To reheat your fried foods, let them come up to room temperature and then bake briefly in a 400-degree oven. Use a wire rack atop a baking sheet to keep too much steam from making things soggy.
