On a recent episode of Food Network’s hit reality show â€˜The Next Food Network Star,â€™ finalist Jeffrey Saad impressed judges with his Wood-Grilled Tilapia with Spicy Soy Broth.
Contestants were challenged by Red Lobster Senior Executive Chef Michael LaDuke, Iron Chef Michael Symon and celeb chef Bobby Flay to develop a unique wood-fire grilled recipe using fresh fish served at Red Lobster restaurants. The challenge focused on the finalists’ ability to develop a dish using wood-fire grilling methods just like those used by Red Lobster’s certified Grill Masters everyday in its restaurants nationwide.
Saad, of Los Angeles, Calif., earned the distinction of having his winning wood-grilled fresh fish entrÃ©e featured on the “Today’s Fresh Fish” menu at 690 Red Lobsters across North America.
You can check out his winning recipe right here on The Food Channel.
