Fish on the grill. Four simple words that strike fear into the hearts of novice grillers. Well, fear no more, because PROJECT FIRE will walk you every step of the grilling process-from grilling whole fish and fillets to fire-roasting shellfish. We'll make Singapore-spiced halibut grilled in banana leaves, and a whole fish with Indonesian flavors grilled by Rafael Lunetta, chef/owner of Lunetta in Santa Monica. Alaskan salmon riffs on Russian coulibiac, with a stuffing of grilled onions, mushrooms, rice and smoke are on the menu. Finally, we grill pristinely fresh oysters with Asian-inflected aromatics.

PROJECT FIRE: Fish Hits the Fire

About The Series:


Deciding it was time to turn up the heat, Steven Raichlen introduces his hottest series yet, PROJECT FIRE, a new and insightful exploration of how we grill today and how we will grill and smoke tomorrow. With a dynamic new format that includes on-set guests and off-road field trips, innovators of live fire cooking join Steven to share revolutionary new techniques that will elevate the backyard barbecue experience - from ember-roasting and salt slab grilling to fire-heated iron and high tech rotisseries.

PROJECT FIRE will introduce new foods from unfamiliar cuts of steak to eco-friendly seafood, and new twists on popular classics such as entire meals cooked on the grill, from breakfast to paella to clambakes. And, as usual, there will be a jaw-dropping collection of new tools, fuels, and grills.
