If frozen, thaw fish overnight in the refrigerator.
If time is short, wrap in a plasic bag and place under cold, running water for an hour or two.
If scallops or shrimps are "individually quick frozen" there is no need to thaw.
Reserve liquid if canned fish are used.
Check for bits of shell.
Chop lobster meat into bite-size pieces and remove cartilage from the claw meat.
Cut fillets into cubes.
Bring 2 cups of water to a boil.
Add raw fish and simmer 3-4 minutes.
Reserve fish and dissolve chicken bouillon cubes in the cooking liquid.
Pour into a 2-cup measure, including any liquid from canned shellfish.
Cut scallops in half if large.
Heat butter in the top half of a double boiler.
Stir in the flour and cook several minutes.
Gradually beat in 2 cups of hot liquid.
Continue to stir and cook until sauce thickens.
Add Cheddar cheese, cook and stir until well blended.
Remove from heat.
Combine egg yolks and cream, beat with a fork and add slowly to the sauce while stirring vigorously.
Wash and slice mushrooms; cook in 1 tablespoons butter.
Add mushrooms, Worcestershire sauce, cayenne pepper and shellfish to the sauce.
Taste sauce carefully and salt if required.
