This is so Rich and Fresh, Very Intense and Easy to make so forget the bottled clam juice or fish stock. This stock is made from the basics so do save and freeze your "scraps" (onion skins, garlic skins and roots, carrots, bell pepper, celery ends, scallion ends, fresh herb stems, onion roots, asparagus bottom trimmings, etc. and of course shrimp shells. Use in anything that calls for seafood stock or clam juice or to make rice, fish stews, gumbo and jambalaya's. It's a shame to discard all the goodness and it is so expensive that it would be a sin to buy. Because it cost you almost NOTHING! Just pennies! So never discard a shell, just freeze and then make rich yummy stock. You can reduce this shrimp stock for more intense flavor.
