2. In a large stockpot, sauté the 1 Tbsp olive oil and garlic for 3-5 minutes over medium high heat.

3. Pour the Bloody Mary mixture into the pot and bring to a boil. Add in the shrimp, scallops, and lobster tails and stir well, cooking 7-10 minutes until the seafood is done.

4. Serve this dish in large soup or pasta bowls, with a mound of pasta in the center, seafood piled around, and broth poured over the top.

*Note: "I used Better Than Bouillon brand lobster base, found near the canned chicken stock. This is a highly reduced stock made into a paste. It is wonderful, rich broth filled with seafood and topped with fresh fish is great served with fresh sourdough bread." – Chef LaDuke

This was delicious and easy. The lobster base was expensive so I used fish base. served with salad and good bread to mop up wonderful sauce. It was a great hit with guests and ready quickly. Have pasta ready first.
