This is pretty much the same recipe as my coconut onion rings. My husband was not in a “coconut” mood yesterday, so I just eliminated that. As for the hot sauce goes, use what you have or like! And add more or less “less oh oh oh I don’t know that word…lol lol lol” to suite your taste! Served these with BBQ-ed ribs and slaw....:-))))
