"I know how to make sausage, and now that I've seen how laws are made, I'll stick with sausage." -Tom Colicchio, Chef
Making shrimp stock is easy. As you make shrimp dishes, save the shells from the shrimp in a gallon-size Ziplock bag in the freezer. Once you have enough to fill the bag, put the shrimp shells in a 4-quart saucepan and add enough water to just cover the shells.
Place the pan over medium high heat. You don't want the stock to boil, but just come to a simmer. Cook for about 20 to 25 minutes, then remove from the heat. Let it stand another 15 minutes until cooler, then pour the stock through a fine mesh strainer into a bowl and discard the solids. It's best to strain the stock a second time through a coffee filter, paper towel, or cheese cloth. Freeze in one or two cup batches.
