   white meat and mix lightly. In a separate bowl, put
   breadcrumbs, remaining mayonnaise and lemon juice and
   the mustard. Scoop out brown meat from shell and put
   into bowl and mix lightly. Wash shell and dry. Use
   brown meat mixture to fill the two sides of shell and
   pack white meat into centre. Sprinkle finely-chopped
   hard-boiled egg and rest of parsley over top for
   decoration. Serve with lots of brown bread and butter
   and a green salad to follow.
