the scallops. Cover the pot and steam for 3 minutes. Remove the scallops with tongs. 5. Extract the lobster meat, reserving the shells. Peel and devein the

shrimp, reserving the shells. Chop the meats into bite-sized portions; cover and set aside. 6. Return the seafood shells to the pot of broth and add 2 cups water.

Bring to a boil, and then reduce the heat and simmer for 30 minutes. Strain the broth and return to the pan. 7. Bring the broth to a simmer over low heat. Add the cream, milk, thyme,

parsley and rosemary and simmer until the mixture thickens slightly, 5 minutes. Add the lobster, shrimp, mussels, and scallops and simmer for 2 minutes. Stir in the spinach and carrots and simmer another 2 minutes just to wilt the spinach. Season with salt and pepper, and stir in the lemon juice. Serve hot. Serves 6.
