Default Mother's Day Salt Block Cook

We've had this Himalayan salt block for well over 2 years and we finally got around to using it and what better occasion than Mother's Day.

Started off heating the salt block up slowly on the grill. Started around 200F for about 20 mins, then 300 for 10 mins, then up to about 450 for about 20 minutes to ensure it was nice and hot. We also made some double baked stuffed potatoes, but I didn't take any pics of those, just of the scallops and the shrimp we cooked on the salt block.



We had Cajun seasoning and garlic Parmesan seasoning that we rolled the scallops and shrimp in before putting the on the block.




First the scallops as they'll take a little longer than the shrimp.



Now the shrimp join the party.



The scallops and shrimp were very tasty and I can't say the saltiness came from the seasonings and not the salt block, but I would assume the seasoning. Next time we'll try asparagus on the salt block and maybe some home made mozzarella cheese.


Thanks for looking.

Very Nice I have heard good things about using salt blocks. Have also heard that initially food is salty and as you use it it decreases
