Shrimp stock

cb1 | Jun 2, 2009 10:17 AM

We eat a lot of shrimp. All different ways. Watching a cooking show earlier this year they said don't throw away the shells, they have lots of flavor and make great stock.

Well, we've been saving shells, and more shells, and even more shells, in the freezer. My wife is wondering what I'm going to do with them, and I am wondering myself now too.

What do I do with them? How do I make a stock, and how would I use a shrimp stock? In my gumbo? Only seafood type dishes?
