Shrimp Stock

Having shrimp for dinner?  Don’t throw away the shrimp peels.  The shrimp peels make a wonderful shrimp stock that you can freeze and use later.

  • tbsp spoon of oil
  • shrimp peels
  • bay leaf
  • carrot
  • 2 celery stalks
  • 1 onion
  • clove of garlic
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Heat oil, add all ingredients

Cook for a few minutes.  Add 8 cups of water.  Bring to a boil and then reduce heat to low.  Simmer for an hour or so.  Strain, cool, freeze and use for your next soup or stew.

Remove grease from soups or stews

To remove grease from soups or stews:

  • Drop a lettuce leaf in. The leaf will absorb the grease.
  • Remove lettuce before serving.
