1 tsp salt, divided
1/2 c buttermilk

Step 1: In a small mixing bowl, add the flour, ½ teaspoon of salt, and paprika. Whisk until well mixed.
Step 2: In another mixing bowl, add the egg and buttermilk. Beat until well mixed, then add about ¼ cup of the flour mixture. Beat until well blended.
Step 3: In another mixing bowl, add the Panko crumbs, 2 tablespoons of oil, and ½ teaspoon of salt. Stir until well combined.
Step 4: Coat each onion ring with the flour mixture, then into the buttermilk mixture, and lastly into the Panko crumb mixture. Repeat this process to the rest of the onion rings.
