Fire Birds (Episode #304H)

KQED Life: Sun, Nov 19, 2017 -- 6:00 PM

Poultry is one of the most versatile meats to cook over live fire, popular in grill cultures across planet barbecue. From the Republic of Georgia comes tabaka, citrusy butterflied chickens grilled under a press to compact the meat and crisp the skin. On the side? A piquant rhubarb tkemali sauce. From Fez in Morocco, experience grilled chicken and onion kebabs marinated in and sauced with spice-scented charmoula. Pound cake gets the grill treatment with fresh berry "salsa" and smoked whipped cream. Finally, not even Norman Rockwell would recognize this magnificent bird...a smoke-roasted organic turkey with butter and sliced fresh truffles under the skin.

Local Channel Island rockfish roasts on a Himalayan salt slab, served with a colorful melon mint relish. Tuna steaks come spice-rubbed and grill-blackened, sauced with spicy Cajun remoulade. Next, fire-roasted shrimp seasoned with deconstructed pesto. And for smoked fish lovers, gorgeous Alaskan king salmon cured with maple syrup and smoked over maple wood.
