Crustacean stock

Crustacean shells can be used to make a delicious stock. No need to add any crab meat. No matter how meticulous you are, there is always something left sticking to the shells. Adding some extra meat will flavor the stock stronger though.

No need to buy huge quantities. Whenever you eat shrimp, crayfish, crab, lobster or any other crustacean, freeze the shells until you have enough to make a strong crustacean stock.
