my tip (lagniappe)is just to make your own shrimp stock. It's easy and adds so much more flavor then just water or chicken stock. I save the shells in a zip-lock bag until I have enough and just put in a pot with a quarter onion (skin on), celery. Bring to boil and simmer for up to 4 hours. Even 30 minutes is better then just water. I then freeze it in 1-2 cup containers until needed. laissez les bon temps rouler! Posted: 6:02 pm on February 14th
