Shrimp Stock

READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

This recipe is based on Emeril's basic shrimp stock. Great stock to use for seafood stews. We eat so much shrimp that I always have tons of shrimp shells in my freezer.

Dissapointed. I thought about browning the ingredients but trusted the recipe. The whole lemons make the stock quite bitter and the flavor is weak. Perhaps i need to reduce the stock more but overall dissapointed.
