When you're cooking the food of Southern Louisiana, to get that real Creole, Cajun flavor into your gumbo or your etouffee, you need a shrimp stock. A shrimp stock adds no cost and takes no time. It's nothing more than all your pairings from getting ready. Your shrimp shells, your onion peels, your root end, and tops of your celery. Everything but the bell pepper goes into the stock pot. Cover in with water in excess of a couple of inches, bring it to a full rolling boil, cook it for ten minutes and you've got the secret essence of the sea. No fishy flavor, just sweet beautiful shrimp stock.
