Peel papery layer off onion. Trim 1/2-inch off tip of onion to create a flat even side. Lay onion cut side down and root tip up. With a paring knife, make 4 cuts downward starting from root to tip to create 4 sections; make 2 further cuts within each section to create the blossom “petals”. (Be careful not to cut too close to the root as that is what will keep the blossom held together).Place onion root side up onto a heat proof plate and microwave for 4 minutes.Meanwhile, whisk together BBQ sauce and egg in a small bowl.Flip the hot onion root side down onto the plate to allow the petals to open up, separating with your fingers. Pour sauce mix over the onion while brushing with a pastry brush to ensure an even coating. Sprinkle Shake N Bake all over the onion blossom and in between the layers.Make a foil support to hold the onion blossom by folding a 12-inch long sheet of foil lengthwise into a 5-inch wide strip, roll both sides up a few times to create handles. Slide the onion blossom onto the centre of the foil strip. Place into air fryer basket and spray lightly with oil.Air Fry at 375F for 8 minutes or until golden brown. Alternately, bake onion at 375F in the oven on convection for 10-12 minutes or until golden brown.To make the smokey BBQ aioli sauce, combine BBQ sauce and hot and spicy aioli in a small bowl. Drizzle over blooming onion and sprinkle with parsley.
