Serves 6


  • 12oz Chardonnay or other white wine
  • 32-33.8oz Bloody Mary mix
  • 2 tsp Lobster Base
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 bunch green onion, sliced
  • 1 red pepper, diced
  • 2 Tbsp parsley, chopped
  • 1 cup basil, chopped
  • 6 Roma or plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 Tbsp olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 lb large shrimp, peeled and deviened
  • 1 lb sea scallops
  • 6 ea 2-3 oz Maine Lobster tails, split in half
  • 1 lb Linguini, cooked
  • salt and pepper, to taste


1. In a large bowl, mix the wine, Bloody Mary mix, lobster base, lemon juice, green onions, red pepper, parsley, basil and diced tomatoes and set aside.

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
