Making shrimp stock for the first time..

tunapet | Mar 26, 2013 09:05 PM

I have about 4 lbs of Maine shrimp shells and heads in the freezer and am planning on turning it into stock tomorrow. Should I use chicken stock or just plain water...and how much liquid per pound? Also how long should I cook it...It should be fairly quick right...not an all day affair like a chicken stock? Thanks for any hints or advice!
And on is the bodies and heads of 4lbs of shrimp so I guess it's not 4lbs after all...
