For Stan's birthday
we bought him a Salt Plate at Williams Sonoma.
We have never cooked on it before and the kids thought he loves
barbecuing. Let's get it for him.
They also had a cookbook with lots of great recipes.
We ended up buying a 8" x 12" plate with holder and
(4) 5" square plates.
He loved the present!
He cooked Scallops with Bacon,
and some steaks.
The meal was delicious!
It gives a little salt favor to whatever you're cooking.
Great present for someone who loves barbecuing.
We also made dessert
Salted Chocolate Brownies with Pistachio Gelato.
Chill the salt blocks at least 1 hour before using.
We made chocolate brownies and I bought some Pistachio Gelato.
Chop up some pistachios and chocolate to garnish the top.
Drizzle some melted chocolate.
Serve on the salt blocks.
You'll feel like you just went to the best restaurant!!
Forgot to tell you we also made homemade Focaccia too!!
Wow, what a meal!!
Here's some photos outside in the backyard.
