I am the only wing lover in the family, and while chowing down on these tasty treats I was thankful of that fact. The mushroom soy sauce was impossible for me to find, so I just subbed my favorite Nama Shoyu, but sure am curious as to what that stuff might taste like. I liked the hot sweet quality of these wings, as well as the interesting sesame undercurrent. My wings baked up nice and brown in the recommended time. Next time I think I might reduce the lemon zest and/or juice or find a smaller lemon, since the tartness was a bit jarring.
