  1. 2/3 cup spicy brown mustard
  2. 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  3. 2 tablespoons honey
  4. Canola oil, for frying
  5. 2 large sweet onions, thinly sliced and rings separated
  6. 2 cups whole buttermilk
  7. 1 cup all-purpose fl our
  8. 3/4 cup yellow cornmeal
  9. 1 tablespoon Cajun seasoning
  10. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  1. In a small bowl, whisk together mustard, vinegar, and honey. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
  2. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with paper towels. In a large Dutch oven, pour canola oil to a depth of 3 inches, and heat over medium-high heat until a deep-fry thermometer registers 350°.
  3. In a large bowl, gently stir together onions and buttermilk, making sure onions are coated in buttermilk. In another large bowl, whisk together flour, cornmeal, and Cajun seasoning.
