  • Set aside.
  • Cut the meat up into pieces mix well and place back into shell.
  • Melt the butter in a large saute pan over medium heat.
  • Add the shallot and cook until tender.
  • Add in the fish stock or clam juice, white wine and cream.
  • Bring to a boil, and cook until reduced by half.
  • Mix in the mustard, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper.
  • Preheat the oven broiler.
  • Place the lobster halves on a broiling pan or baking sheet, and spoon the sauce over each half.
  • Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top.
  • Broil for 3 to 4 minutes, just until golden brown.
