makes 6 servings

2 large sweet onions {about 1 1/2-lbs}
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup buttermilk
1 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
1 1/4 cups all purpose flour 
Vegetable oil
1/2 cup plain cornmeal
1 tsp paprika
3/4 tsp ground red pepper
3/4 tsp celery salt
Fresh Thyme-Horseradish Aïoli

Slice the onions to 1/8-inch thickness & place in a large bowl; add the milk, the buttermilk, 1/2 tsp salt & the black pepper. Coat the onions & submerge them in the mixture using a pair of tongs. Chill 1 hour. 

Pour the oil to a depth of 1-inch in a 3 1/2 quart saucepan & heat to 360 degrees. Whisk together the remaining 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, the flour, the cornmeal, the paprika, the ground red pepper & the celery salt in a medium bowl. Dredge the onion slices in the flour mixture, shaking off the excess. Drop the onions into the hot oil, in batches, being certain not to overcrowd the pan. Cook 2 to 3 minutes or until golden brown. Remove the onions from the oil & place over paper towels. Sprinkle with additional kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper, if desired. Serve with Fresh Thyme-Horseradish Aïoli.
