Welcome to

Escape Fishing with ET

Hosted by former rugby legend and fishing fanatic Andrew Ettingshausen, Series 18 of Escape Fishing with ET brings us the latest in Fishing, Camping, Boating & Four Wheel Driving from around Australia.


Episode 13: Albany Barra and Blue

Airs 27th May 2017

We bid goodbye to Cape York with a bang! On the last day of our camping trip to the remote Doughboy River, we fish the mangrove snags around the mouth for fun-size Barra and Mangrove Jack. Back at our Albany Island base, we give the European chefs, who make this place such an amazing contrast of luxury living and wilderness, their first taste of down under fishing. And it’s a wild ride of chasing Tuna at the top and wrestling reef monsters from the bottom of the blue Torres Strait waters. There’s more big and colourful reefie action elsewhere in Queensland, Aussie Bass from a kayak, and chef Paul Breheny barbecues Kingfish spiced with Sumac.

Longboats are the norm in the tropics. Flat seas greeted us most days as we travelled out wide to fish the volcano sea mounts for Dogtooth Tuna.

Imad Iskafi told you harbour is full of life

Daniel Spratt

Et you look like a water police 👮

Now, that is fishing, Andrew. Gut and cut it up, including tentacles, bit of oil in a skillet toss, a bit of white wine, salt, a handful of fresh bread crumbs to soak up the liquids. All in just minutes. OR, if you are on a diet, same thing, hot saucepan with half a cup of water throw in your squid, clamp lid down with your thumbs and toss around. All in a minute or two, plate, salt and pepper...

All New Seafood Escape

With Andrew Ettingshausen

There’s more to great seafood than just what you see on your plate. Andrew “ET” Ettingshausen teams up with some of Australia’s toughest professional fishing crews and most creative chefs to reveal the whole journey from ocean depths to the heights of culinary delight.


Seafood Escapes is a six part series showing the action and adventure of how sustainable seafood is sourced from the seas and bays around Australia. It goes the extra step to show how that seafood becomes a part of our national cuisine.

In the manner of Gourmet Farmer and Surfing the Menu, Seafood Escapes gets down and dirty – and wet – working out where our food originally comes from, then follows it all the way to the plate in interesting workaday and trendy restaurant settings. And along the way, it takes viewers to some of the most scenic coastal communities ever seen on television.
