– Serves 4 to 6 –

For the shrooms:
1 lb. king oyster mushrooms
2 Tbsp. oil (to coat in bowl)
½ cup water, divided

For the marinade:
¼ cup tamari
1 Tbsp. agave
1 Tbsp. Ninja Squirrel Sriracha

For the peanut-ginger sauce:
1 cup smooth peanut butter
¹⁄³ cup tamari
1 Tbsp. fresh ginger, chopped
1 tsp. chopped garlic
3-4 limes, sliced in half & juice
½ tsp. smoked paprika
1 cup warm water (as needed to thin out the sauce)

For the garnish:
Sesame seeds
¼ cup cilantro, chopped
Few leaves of mint, some sliced wicked thin and some left whole
Plus wooden skewers, soaked in water for about an hour

To prepare the mushrooms:
Toss the mushrooms in the oiled bowl, using your hands to coat them. Place mushrooms into a cast iron pan over medium-high heat. Place another cast iron pan on top of the mushrooms to create weight. Add ¼ cup water, cook for 2-3 minutes, then flip.

Add the remaining ¼ cup water and press again. The purpose here is to press them into a square.

Remove the weight and the mushrooms from the pan. Slice into thin strips, then place into the marinade. Set aside for 20 minutes to an hour.

To prepare the peanut-ginger sauce:
Combine all of the sauce ingredients except for the water. Slowly add the water until the desired consistency is achieved. Set aside.

To grill the marinated mushrooms:
Skewer each mushroom strip onto a skewer. Grill until the mushrooms develop a little color. Serve drizzled with the peanut-ginger sauce, sesame seeds, cilantro and mint.
