Place the liquids, onion, and celery in a large pot set over high heat. When the liquid comes to a rapid boil, add the shellfish, cover the pot, and reduce the heat to a gentle simmer. Cook for 6 to 9 minutes or until the shells have opened. Pour the cooking liquid through a fine-mesh strainer or several layers of cheesecloth into a serving bowl.
