To Make the Onion Rings
Soak the onion slices in the milk / milk alternative overnight, this helps extract any bitterness.
To Make the Batter
Place all of the ingredients for the batter into a bowl and whisk together until smooth.
Heat the oil in a large saucepan.
Dip the onion rings into the batter and fry in the hot oil until golden brown and cooked through.
To Make the Vinaigrette
Heat a griddle pan over high heat.
Drizzle a little olive oil onto the cut side of the lemon halves.
Place them cut side down, on the very hot griddle pan. Sear for 4 minutes. Give the lemons a quarter turn and sear for another two minutes. Squeeze the juice and pulp into a bowl and add the rest of the ingredients for the vinaigrette and whisk together well.
