1
Place the stock in a large saucepan or deep skillet and bring to a boil over medium-high heat.

Turn the heat to medium-low and add the shrimp. Cover and simmer for 2 minutes, then turn off the heat, uncover, and let the shrimp cool in the liquid for about 10 minutes.

Drain the shrimp, reserving the stock for another use (if you choose).
