Homestyle Shrimp Stock

Here's a recipe for shrimp stock that tastes delicious and is quite easy to prepare!

  • 4 quarts cold Water
  • 1 medium sized Spanish Onion, quartered
  • 3 stalks Celery, chopped coarse
  • 2 large Carrots, quartered
  • 2 lb fresh Shrimp shells & tails

Cooking Procedure:
  • Put all of the ingredients in a large pot
  • Over high heat, bring this to a rolling boil
  • Reduce heat to low & simmer for 4 hours
  • Skim any white foam off of the top of the stock & discard it
  • When the stock is finished,  strain it through a fine mesh colander into a container
  • Tightly cover the container & place in the fridge
  • The stock is best when used within 2 days of preparation
  • You can also freeze the stock for future use

This will yield 1 1/2 to 2 quarts of stock
