  1. 2 cups all-purpose flour
  2. 1 teaspoon salt
  3. 1 teaspoon Creole seasoning
  4. 1 (12-ounce) bottle beer
  5. 3 large onions, sliced ½ inch thick and rings separated
  6. Vegetable oil, for frying
  7. ¾ cup sour cream
  8. ½ cup mayonnaise
  9. ¼ cup chopped fresh parsley
  10. 3 tablespoons buttermilk
  11. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  12. 2 tablespoons chopped fresh chives
  13. 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  14. ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  1. Preheat oven to 200°. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with paper towels. Place a wire rack on another large rimmed baking sheet.
  2. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour, salt, and Creole seasoning; whisk in beer until smooth.
  3. In a large Dutch oven, pour oil to a depth of 3 inches, and heat over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 375°.
  4. Working in batches, dip onion rings into batter, letting excess drip off. Carefully lower onions into hot oil, and fry for 2 to 4 minutes or until golden brown. Let drain on paper towels, then transfer to wire rack on pan; transfer rack on pan to oven to keep onion rings warm before serving.
  5. In a small bowl, stir together sour cream and all remaining ingredients; serve with onion rings.
