In This Recipe
Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high. Rub mushrooms with oil and season with salt and pepper. When grill is hot, add mushrooms and grill, turning once, until just tender, 6 to 8 minutes. When cool enough to handle, cut mushrooms into 1-inch slices.
In a large bowl, whisk together lime juice, fish sauce, agave, lemongrass and chili-garlic paste. Add bok choy, snow peas, tomatoes, peanuts, cilantro and mint; toss to coat salad in dressing. Season salad with additional salt and pepper, if needed. Plate salad and top with mushrooms.
