Teriyaki Shrimp and Scallop Kebabs

The simple glaze (which also goes well with chicken, pork, or beef) is easy to make the night before - just chill until you're ready to use it. Serve these kebabs over chilled soba noodles tossed with some orange juice, sesame oil, a touch of soy sauce, and chopped green onions.
