This is such a no-brainer and uses up lots of stuff that you were going to throw away!! And, it's an excellent way to use up raw shrimp shells or lobster shells when you are making a seafood supper, for example, shrimp fettucine alfredo, or, lobster bisque, and you plan to peel the shrimp and/or lobster before cooking your supper dish. So, turn these otherwise useless shells into something fantastic! This wonderful stock can be frozen in freezer-type zip-lock bags in one-cup portions (or in ice cube trays) for later use as a clam chowder base, bouillabaisse, seafood casserole liquid or, for any number of recipes which call for seafood stock as a basic ingredient. Feel free to use more or less amounts of vegetables found in your refrigerator which may have started to fade in quality. Also, you can substitute other vegetables in this stock as you have them available such as cabbage, brussel sprouts, brocolli, bok choy, etc. I hate throwing away produce, don't you? You will want to drink this stock right away when you smell the ambiance of its excellent aroma! It needs no additional salt as the bouillon provides more than enough. Having this stock available in your freezer will make your life EASIER and your recipes BETTER. Enjoy!
