Video and Recipes: Love Crab Cakes? Try Caribbean Version from Florida Chef

From Denny: We love crab cakes in the South and this chef from Florida has a fabulous recipe available! I just love it when chefs come on national TV and share their recipes as promotion for some new restaurant they are opening like this lady. These recipes are such a treat!
