A Sunrise Recipe: Crab Cakes

Our chef at Sunrise of Wilmington, DE, hosted a cooking activity where he surprised residents with these crab cakes with an Asian twist. This tasty dish has quickly became a preferred alternative to the traditional dish.

Nutrition Fact: Crab is low in fat, and contains the mineral chromium. Chromium enhances the action of insulin, so it’s a great choice for diabetics, as it may help control blood sugar levels.
