GETTING READY
1) Slice the petits pains in half, lengthwise, and scoop out most of the dough, set aside.
2) In a stockpot, prepare court bouillon by mixing the first 6 ingredients.
3) Allow to cook for 20 minutes.
4) Place the lobster and simmer 15 minutes until barely cooked.
5) Take the pot off the heat and allow to cool.

MAKING
6) In a bowl, whisk together mustard and vinegar, slowly add oil to make an emulsion, and whisk continuously.
7) While still whisking add egg yolks, one at a time, until blended.
8) Mix in garlic, sea salt, white pepper, horseradish, and mayonnaise; stir well.
9) Carefully remove the lobster meat from shell; cut into 1-inch chunks.
10) Place the lobster meat into the dressing, for less than 30 minutes; otherwise, lobster will be tough.

12) Line each sandwich with watercress and palace on serving plate.
13) Top the watercress with lobster mixture, and garnish with a few truffle slices.
