Stir in milk; con-tinue cooking and stirring until sauce thickens and bubbles 1 minute. Stir half of hot mixture into beaten egg in a small bowl; return to sauce-pan; cook, stirring constantly, 1 minute, or until sauce thickens again. Stir in lemon juice.
5. Fold 1 cup of the hot sauce into salmon. Line 4 scallop shells or 4 individual foil baking dishes with chopped spinach. Spoon salmon mixture onto center of spinach. Spoon remaining hot sauce over salmon.
6. Broil, about 4 inches from heat, 3 minutes, or until tops are light brown and bubbly. Garnish with a slice of lemon and a sprig of parsley, if you wish.
