Slice the onions through the centre. Put the onions, cut side down, in a hot dry frying pan and allow to burn. Remove the pan from the heat and cover with an upturned bowl. Leave the onions to sweat for 30 minutes and then peel the layers apart.
Use the inner shells on the plate and keep the outer shells for the onion juices, right.
