2. Preheat the oven to 230°C (450°F; gas mark 8).
3. Shell the prawns and put aside. Put the shells of the prawns and the juice of the oysters in a saucepan, together with the white wine, bouquet garni and onion. Simmer for 15 minutes. Strain through a fine sieve and put aside.
4. Cut the earthy base from the mushrooms and wash under running water. In a saucepan, over a low heat, melt 30 g (1 1/4 oz) butter, add the mushrooms and lemon juice and cook slowly for 15 minutes.
5. In another saucepan, melt the remaining butter, sprinkle in the flour, and stir over a low heat. Then add the milk, a little at a time, together with the reserved stock. Stir with a wooden spoon until it thickens. Remove from the heat and add 60 ml (4 tbls) cream. Stir well, add the oysters, prawns and mushrooms, and heat.
6. Fill the vol-au-vent cases with the mixture and bake for 2 minutes. Serve at once.
