Clocking in at just two ingredients and only needing a five-minute simmer time, this fast and flavorful shrimp broth is perfect for boosting seafood-studded dishes like risotto or shrimp scampi.
Place shrimp shells and whole garlic clove in a small saucepan and add 1 1/4 cups water. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 5 minutes. Strain stock, discarding solids, and set aside. Let cool and refrigerate up to 2 days or freeze up to 3 months.
