 --------  ------------  --------------------------------
    6                    Lobsters-maine (1 1/4 lb.)
    1      cup           Celery-diced
    1      cup           Onion-diced
    1      cup           Scallops-cubed
    1      cup           Bay shrimp-diced
      1/2  cup           Crab meat
    4      tablespoons   Butter
                         Salt & ground black pepper
      1/4  teaspoon      Msg
      1/4  cup           Sherry
    1 1/4  cups          Mayonnaise
    6      teaspoons     Cracker meal
 
 Preheat oven to 350. Immerse lobsters in boil- ing salted water for 5-7 mins. &
let cool in the same water. While they're cooling, saute celery, onion, scallops,
shrimp & crab meat in butter. Season to taste w/ salt & pepper. Add MSG & sherry.
Strain mixture to release excess liquid. While this mixture is draining, if lob-
sters have cooled sufficiently, place them belly side up on a cutting board. Cut
them down the middle w/ a sharp knife & open them flat, leaving the meat intact.
Remove the stuffing mixture from the strainer to a bowl. Add the mayonnaise &
stir gently until well mixed. Mound filling on each lobster shell. Sprinkle
cracker meal over the tops. Bake 5-7 minutes in preheated oven until golden
brown.
