    Rinshinomori's Note:

    This recipe is from Coastal Living. I like gumbo, all kinds of gumbo, but I needed to make gumbo with much less heat and chose this recipe to highlight the sweetness of shrimp and crab. If you like more heat, adjust with hot pepper sauce at the table. Cook grits according to package direction and add 1 C cheese of your choice right before serving. I added 1/2 gruyere and 1/2 comte cheese. For this recipe, I chose Dungeness crab legs and claws that have been smashed with a hammer a bit to take in juice from the gumbo. You can also use stone crab claws too. Any kind of crab will do.
