Cooking with salt

Pete and Donna joined us for dinner and dominoes again, but this time we made them cook their own dinner. Randy likes to experiment with cooking techniques like cooking on salt blocks. Pete and Donna had not had that experience yet, so we decided tonight was the night to change that. 

Randy made scalloped potatoes and vegetables as side dishes, and prepared the shrimp and steak.
When the salt blocks were properly hot, he put one beside everyone's plate and passed the raw food around so we could take what we wanted and cook it on our personal salt block. 
The salt did a good job, but we talked enough that the salt blocks cooled down before we were finished. So Randy cooked the shrimp as shrimp scampi, then finished the steak in the same pan.
