Cooking Crab with Chef Jeffrey Saad

Tags: Food Rush
Ryan meets up with Chef Jeffrey Saad so they can learn how to catch and crack crab at Fisherman's Wharf. Then, they cook three delicious crab dishes.
It's crab season in the Bay Area and what better way to discover the benefits of catching fresh crab than by going out on a boat to learn from the experts. Ryan and his friend, celebrity chef and author Jeffrey Saad, have fun learning how to catch and crack crab.

Then, they cook three unique crab dishes back at their alma mater, the California Culinary Academy. Jeffrey shows Ryan how to make crab tostadas and crispy black rice cakes with crab. Ryan makes wok tossed chili crab alongside his homemade cocktail sauce.

Jeffrey Saad is the author of "Jeffrey Saad's Global Kitchen: Recipes Without Borders." For more information on Jeffrey Saad visit jeffreysaad.com and for more information on his Grove Restaurants visit thegrovesf.com.
