1 (5-3/4 ounce) can chopped mushrooms

Rock salt

Parmesan cheese

Lemon wedges TO PREPARE:

Open oysters and reserve liquid.  Saute green onion and garlic in butter.  Stir in flour and cook, over low heat, until bubbly.  Add liquid, a little at a time, and simmer until smooth and creamy.  Add remaining ingredients.  Simmer this sauce about 15 minutes.  Place oysters, in shells, on rock salt and bake at 375 degrees until edges curl.  Drain excess liquid from shells and top with sauce.  Sprinkle with grated Parmesan cheese and run under broiler until slightly brown on top.  Serve with lemon wedges.
