    1 cup onion, minced
    1 cup carrot, minced
    2 (10 1/2 ounce) cans chicken broth
    4 tablespoons flour
    6 tablespoons butter
    1 cup heavy cream
    1/2 cup cooking sherry
    1 tablespoon lemon juice
    1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
    1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
    fresh chives, minced
    1/2 lb raw lobsters, chopped or 1/2 lb lump crabmeat


I would saute the carrots alone for a few minutes first, since they take longer to soften up than onions.


Saute onion and carrot in 2 tablespoons butter until soft. Set aside.
In 4 quart saucepan, melt 4 tablespoons butter and add flour, whisking constantly over medium heat until roux becomes light brown (about 5 minutes). DO NOT BURN!
Slowly add chicken broth, whisking constantly to ensure mixture stays smooth.
Add onions and carrots, cover, and simmer for 1/2 hour.
Add cream, sherry, lemon juice, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper, salt, and lobster or crab and simmer an additional 5 to 10 minutes.
Garnish with fresh minced chives if desired.
