    When the recipe asks for shrimp shells, what about the heads? Does shells mean only the tail? I have some really nice jumbos I want to use.[/recipe]

    Oooh, yes, I have done this a few days ago!

    Save the shells and heads. (I have not read the recipe).

    In my case I simmered (slowly) the shrimp shells and heads in a LOT of farm butter, for about 10 - 15 minutes. Then whizzed in a processor (it can NOT get smooth, not to worry).

    Then tip into a sieve over a bowl, and press on the solids to extract all the butter-shrimpy juices.

    Season to taste. Can be frozen.

    GREAT! Thanks! You know, the crawfish (similar to shrimp), we sucked the heads (as was the custom) in Lisbon. So there's some good stuff in those heads. I'll git-er-done!
