Shrimp shells have tons of flavor. Clam shells do not. It will not hurt anything to add clam shells, but it is not beneficial either. if you do it and enjoy doing it then there is no reason for you to stop.

I second that. Comparing shrimp shells (as well as lobster & crayfish shells) to clam shells is an apples vs. oranges thing. Totally different.

You can simmer up shrimp shells & end up with a fabulous stock. Same can't be said for clam (or mussel, or scallop) shells.

But as GB said, if you enjoy doing it, knock yourself out - lol!!
