Genshin Impact: Yummy Barbeque Under the Stars web event guide

Plenty of Genshin Impact’s web events have been an exercise in quick, haphazard clicks to log in and snag a few rewards. The Yummy! Barbeque Under the Stars asks you to be a little more thoughtful about your choices, as you’ll work to prepare a series of fishy dishes to improve your friendship level with Shiki Taishou and complete the Grilled Fish Archive. 

The event won’t run for long; you have from now until November 7 to log in and work on completing your collection of recipes. Mihoyo will give you three fish to begin, adding one to your basket every six hours after that. You can hold a maximum of four. Make sure you understand the cooking process explained below before jumping in.

How to cook, season, and fish

For cooking each recipe, you’ll break the process down into three steps: fish selection, seasoning, and grilling. Some recipes are pretty lenient, but five have their titles hidden and tend to be a little finicky. For the sake of this guide, we’ll break down the terminology used for each process.

Fish Selection

Your fish options are Bitter Pufferfish, Medaka, and Golden Bass. For some recipes, you can pick any of the fish, while others restrict you to one type. Make sure your fish selection matches what the instructions require.

Seasoning

For seasoning, you’ll click the shaker on the right side and have options for Mild, Just Right, and Heavy. You can also opt for none, so there are technically four choices—just don’t click the shaker.

Cooking

When cooking your fish, things like animation, flipping, and timing are important. Both sides of the fish can be cooked, and the Under The Stars web event will time the process, so it’s easy to burn things if you stop to read. 

In our recipe chart, we’ll refer to the level of doneness on each side and include any additional notes for the process on a few special fish. The longer your fish cooks, the more changes you will see as it goes transitions through five different levels. We’ve listed all of the animations here, along with what we’ll refer to them as in the recipes.

Raw (1), Undercooked (2), Cooked (3), Burnt (4), Completely Burnt (5)

The below lists are based on testing we’ve confirmed, and recipes may not be limited to these guidelines. Some of them are a little too similar when cooking, and one will occasionally count for another when you’re trying to complete a specific dish. Don’t panic—wait a little bit, then try again. If you’re starting early enough and have more time, try completing the easy ones first to get a feel of how things work.

Hidden Recipes

These are the recipes listed as “???” in your log. Paimon may give you a hint from time to time upon completing other recipes on how to cook these up. These special dishes tend to pose bigger obstacles, so you may have to try again.

For recipes like Explosive and Overloaded Grilled Fish and Grilled Fish Beyond Space and Time, it seems you may need to unlock the regular fish-specific dish (like Wild Style Grilled Bitter Pufferfish, Perfectly Grilled Golden Bass, Exquisite Medaka Dish) before triggering these. Our tests unlocked them the quickest by picking one fish (Bitter Pufferfish) and following the recipe until all three were unlocked.

Every entry for the Grilled Fish Archive 

Once you complete a recipe, the rewards and a photo of the dish will appear in your Grilled Fish Archive. Hidden recipes will also show up as new entries, and you'll be able to see their descriptions. If you're trying to figure out the recipes yourself, there are a few hints scattered throughout on how to prepare the dish. 

Fresh And Juicy Grilled Fish - This fish was not grilled until fully cooked, and some moisture in the fish itself was retained. The taste is tender and smooth.

Grilled Fish With Mild Seasoning - Healthy low-fat meal. Without too much seasoning, the original umami flavor of the fish is the star of the dish.

Explosive and Overloaded Grilled Fish - This fish is cooked by an enthusiastic and passionate chef, and it’s blazing with fire. Therefore, after consuming it, people feel full of energy. It makes them just want to race to Dragonspine. 

Wild Style Grilled Bitter Pufferfish - The large Bitter Pufferfish, paired with a rater… unrestrained grilling technique. The end product tastes like something out of the wild. 

Perfectly Grilled Golden Bass - The skin is golden and crisp, the meat is plump and juicy. With one bite, it will leave you speechless with happiness. 

Exquisite Medaka Dish - The delicate Medaka has meat that is flavorful, is less bony, and very fatty. It needs to be cooked with exquisite technique. 

Amazing Grilled Fish That Impressed Paimon - The delicious taste of grilled fish, Paimon and you both want to try. 

Ordinary Grilled FIsh - It’s edible! But that’s about it. Why does it taste different, even though the same technique is used? 

Sashimi? - You’re just too lazy to grill it, right?

Grilled Fish Beyond Space and Time - It is the taste of the grilled fish from Shiki Taishou’s memory. This fragrance and friendship traveled through time and space. 

Sashimi With Extra Thick Sauce - Although seasoning is added, you can grill it first. 

Grilled Fish With Strong Seasoning - The flavor of the seasoning overwhelms the fish itself. When you sprinkle the seasoning next time, please make sure your hands aren’t too shaky!

Grilled Black Snakehead - Actually, it’s just burnt.

Grilled Fish That Broke Through the Dimensions - This fish has been grilled for too long, giving it some mysterious power… 

How to earn more fish, firewood, and seasoning in Genshin Impact's web event

Each recipe will only use one of your resources, so there’s no need to worry about seasoning multiple times, using two fish, or using more wood. However, you’ll need to obtain one of each resource to begin a meal.

Fish

You begin the event with three fish. You’ll receive one additional fish in your basket every six hours. Your basket can only hold four fish at a time, so be careful not to let them over cap. When you’re ready to collect a fish, click Childe’s basket.

Firewood

Log into Genshin Impact daily to obtain four pieces of Firewood.

  • Use 40 Original Resin Daily - (x2)
