 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    4                    lobsters -- boiled
    1                    chopped onion
    1                    clove garlic -- finely chopped
    2      teaspoons     chopped parsley
    2      ounces        brandy
                         few drops of Tabasco
    4      cups          white sauce
    1      cup           sliced mushrooms
                         salt and pepper
      1/2  cup           bread crumbs
    2      teaspoons     Worcestershire sauce
 
 Halve the lobsters.  Remove the meat and dice.  Wash the shells and
 retain.  In a saucepan, melt some butter, add the onions and garlic,
 sautee until golden brown.  Add the lobster meat and flambe with the
 brandy, add the mushrooms and simmer for a few minutes, stir in the
 mustard, Tabasco and Worcestershire and cook over low flame a few more
 minutes.  Mix in the white sauce, remove from fire and add the
 parsley.  Season with salt and pepper and fill the shells with the
 mixture, sprinkle with the breadcrumbs and place under the broiler for
 a few minutes to glaze.
 
 White Sauce: In a saucepan, melt equal parts of butter and flour ( over
 low heat), whisk them together (do not let the mixture get brown) until
 you obtain a homogenous paste.  Let it cool for a few minutes then
 gradually add some hot fish stock, whisk continuously to prevent
 lumps.  Bring the mixture slowly to boil and let simmer for 15 to 20
 minutes.
