These taste so awesome! We served them over chilled parsley-garlic noodles tossed with some lemon or lime juice, olive oil, soy sauce, chives and toasted sesame seeds. Make the glaze the night before so as to cut down on last minute to-do's. Found this in Cooking Light, 2003.

- 3 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- 1 1⁄2 tablespoons rice wine vinegar
- 1 tablespoon minced peeled fresh ginger

- 1 1⁄2 teaspoons water

- 16 mushrooms, halved
- green onion
- 1 tablespoon vegetable oil

- CORNSTARCH MIXTURE:.
- Combine cornstarch and water.
- Stir cornstarch mixture into soy sauce mixture.
- Bring to a boil; cook 1 minute.

Excellent recipe!! It is very similar to Soy-Wasabi Shrimp and Scallop Skewers - Weight Watchers but not as spicy. I highly recommend this for those who on the lower scale when it comes to heat. Wonderful flavor and easy to prepare. DH gave it a big thumbs up. Will be making it again. Thanks for posting DiScharf.
