So I got a himalayan salt plate for Christmas last year, I meant to break it out of the summer and honestly just forgot it was in the basement, well I found it and gave it a run this weekend.

Put it on the egg and let it come to temperature slowly. then I threw shrimp in a bowl with some Olive Oil, Garlic, and a tiny bit of Rosemary. Skewered them and cooked them on the salt plate.


The Salt plate add a nice subtle taste which made the shrimp pop. I think I am going to like using this in the future.

Very cool! What sort of care does the plate require and how long is it supposed to last?

Those shrimp look delicious...

I agree! Is it just for grilling small things or can you use it in a smoker also?

Looks great. I've often wondered if it was more of a gimic thing or if it really works, Looking forward to seeing what you do with it and your results.

P.S. I hear you don't want to put that in the dishwasher or allow it to soak in water. :lol:

Hey SC, they say don't soak it in water, bacteria won't adhere to it. I just flip it over so the stained side gets heated up and then scrape it off. I bought a brand new spackle knife from home depot that I labeled for FOOD ONLY and use that to scrape it. I also use this knife for my pizza stone.

as far as the shrimp, probably the best shrimp I have made, mostly cuz they were over cooked :D

You can use it on the grill, the smoker, oven, some people keep it in the fridge and use it as a serving plater for cheese or sushi.

Griffin, I am with you, it's probably a Gimic, don't see me buying one, but now that I have it I will use it from time to time.

I got one also and kind of forgot about it. Once I remembered, it was like finding a new toy. I've learned for best results you need to get that thing hot. Like 400+. You need to bring it up to temp kind of slow. I rushed mine and it started to crack. For steaks I tried the finny method and it was by far the best filet mignon i've ever done. I found mine (12x12x4) On groupon for $35bucks with shipping. Well worth it
