Covid-19 information is here.
This class is not expected to take place in 2022 due to being unfeasible to run during the pandemic. This page is for information because we plan to run the class again when the situation is more settled.

There are few better meals than a piece of great quality fish, simply grilled or smoked. The emphasis of this fun, relaxed, hands-on evening class is on learning to choose the best fish, and to bring out its best using the barbecue.


Location: London Barbecue School, SE15 4QN
Duration: 3 hours | Experience level: beginner | Cost: £100 per person (incl. VAT)


  • To identify the best fish, and to prepare it (demo)
  • The professional tricks to lift your barbecue fish cookery to new heights
  • Precise barbecue cooking every time, using both grilling and indirect cooking
  • To make sides/sauces to suit the characteristics of each fish (prepared as a group)


Supply of fish varies hugely, so we work with the best available on the day of the class. We always aim to cook something from all these categories:

  • A larger fish, such as sea bass
  • Oily fish, such as mackerel
  • A cephalopod, like squid
  • A “meaty” fish such as monkfish


The format is instructive, relaxed and fun. We start with a quick snack, then light the barbecues. Whilst the barbecues come up to temperature your tutor will introduce the fish we will cook, and explain why they were selected, and how to buy the best fish yourselves. From then on it is simple: cook, eat, repeat.


  • Small snack on on arrival
  • All the ingredients, equipment and fuel for the class
  • A barbecue per 3 people (we’ll match you up with others if you come on you own)
  • Notes and recipes (electronic format)
  • Alcoholic drinks – available to purchase


No class dates scheduled.

This class is not viable to run during the pandemic. As such it is not expected to run in 2022, though the situation will be regularly reviewed. We hope to hold the class again in 2023.
