Shrimp is adaptable to a variety of soups and stewlike dishes, and for the most part can be simmered directly in the dish. Getting the soup or stew to take on the flavor of the shrimp, however, is trickier, since the most flavorful part of the shrimp is in the heads. When you want to make a shrimp broth, order shrimp with the heads—you will probably need to give a day’s notice—and save up the heads and shells in the freezer.
