A great recipe found in Jean Pare's Company Cookbook "Fish and Seafood" We used whitefish caught in Lake Superior. Great appy or main course as fish patties. We doubled the recipe and served as an appetizer

The best ever. I've tried so many different onion ring recipes and they never really came through, but these are perfect. They are so good I made them two days in a row.
