  1. Peel and cut the onions into thick slices (slightly less than 1 cm). Double skewer the onion slices or use flat skewers.
  2. Make up a heat shield from foil to protect the skewers if necessary and cook the onions until slightly charred, turn and cook the otherside.
  3. Meanwhile in a pot, combine all the other ingredients and simmer for 5 minutes. When the onions are cooked, remove them from the barbecue and remove the skewers. Add the onions to the sauce.
