Anybody else make it?

Lobster has been super cheap lately especially wholesale so I've been using the bodies for stock.

I'm just using the shells added back to the strained broth they were boiled in and simmered for a few hours. The broth itself is 2-3 tablespoons of jarred crushed red pepper,has to be Star or Antonio's and jarred minced garlic to taste which for me is about the same.

I'm curious. When you say super cheap what price are you paying? Obviously you are a lot closer to the source than me here in north GA lol.
I love lobster. I bet that stock is fantastic!

I do remember this post from Gonna Smoke Gonna Smoke a while back. Have wanted to try it ever since I saw the post but have not been fishing in LA in a few years. Used to go once a year and always brought back a couple coolers full straight off the shrimp boats in Venice.

Not cheap here either. The best I been able to come up with is just using Knorr Granulated Bouillon Shrimp with maybe some fish cubes. That shrimp is actual pretty good.
