"I make some of my best recipes with a simple homemade stock. Keep shrimp shells stored in a plastic bag in the freezer. When you have almost a gallon-bag full, you can make a stock in 30 minutes that you can use in soups and sauces. You can then freeze the stock in ice-cube trays." -Emeril Lagasse
The great thing about shrimp and other fish is that you can make such a quick meal. Every time I have someone complain about not having the time to cook I think of recipes like this one - 1 minute to chop the shallot, 1 minute to chop the celery, 9 minutes to cook the veggies and shrimp. Simple.
