Even in a cake mix recipe, if it calls for water I add milk... It's all about making layers of flavors.
This recipe doesn't cost a single penny to make, in ingredients, because it's literally garbage t hat makes the best stock.
- shrimp heads and peels
- onion, celery, bell pepper, carrot peels, end pieces, skins, the stuff that you would normally throw away
- garlic skins, parsley stems, green onion tops, corn cobs
- whole peppercorns
- 1 tsp
- liquid crab boil (don't use to much, you don't want it to taste like shrimp boil water
You want to have at least a 4 to 1 ratio of shrimp peels to aromatics.
The shrimp peels will float to the top of pot so save enough room in the pot so it doesn't boil over.
