Step 1:

Step 2:

Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add the shallot; cook and stir until tender. Mix in the fish stock, white wine and double cream. Bring to a boil, and cook until reduced by half. Mix in the mustard, lemon juice, parsley, salt and pepper.

Step 3:

Preheat your oven’s broiler.

Step 4:

Place the Maine lobster halves on a broiling pan or baking sheet, and spoon the sauce over the Maine lobster meat in the shell. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese over the top. Broil for 3 to 4 minutes, just until golden brown.

Step 5:

Serve immediately.
