The Evening Post: How To Make A Blooming Onion

Ever wondered how you can make a blooming onion at home?  Now you can learn how to!  Munchies brought in Chef Mei Lin of Nightshade in Los Angeles to show you how to make a blooming onion at home.  Chef Mei’s recipe, which pays homage to the Outback Steakhouse Bloomin’ Onion, is made with a sweet Vidalia onion that’s soaked in buttermilk, hand-dredged in a mix of flour and cornstarch, deep-fried, and dusted with tom yum spices. Finally, Mei makes an aerated coconut-lime ranch dip to complete this crowd-pleasing appetizer.
