Cooking Food on Slabs of Salt

Pink salt from the Himalayas has been used for seasoning by chefs at fancy restaurants ... and now, you can cook food directly on the slabs of the stuff!

The thick 8-by-11-inch piece of solid salt can be placed directly on a stove burner and heated gradually; it will not melt. Lightly brushed with butter or oil, it will fry eggs that come away with quite enough salt. The same goes for jumbo shrimp, fish steaks or fillets, thin slices of beef and portobello mushroom caps.

They explain how to clean it in the article, pretty much just scrub it and quickly rinse it off. Let it dry completely before each use.
I'm a salt addict but I dunno if I'd like something like that.
Food probably does taste great though cooked on it, specially something like steak.... *drooool*
