Got a salt plate for xmas, what should i cook?

I never even knew these existed until santa brought me one!  Can I use it on the egg?  What should I cook on it?

    I have one, and sadly have not used it yet.  My first cook will be scallops though.  I have read that they are outstanding grilled on the salt plate.  Shrimp should be similar

    Nice toy for great food and wow factor for guest.  I have done steaks, beef and pork, scallops, shrimps and a few others I forget. 
    Here are some thoughts:

    Santa brought me one also. I went straight to google
    and found the Scallop and Asparagus recipe. Absolutely Fabulous.
    Only a small amount of the salt imparted into the food and it is 
    very easy to clean afterward.

    Scallops.......Everything else I have tried hasn't been as good as it is straight over fire.

    I did some filets on a normal sear, then finished them on their sides on the salt plate.  That was pretty good.

    Just don't put anything on it that loses a lot of liquid or fat (e.g. burgers.)  It sucks a lot of the salt up into the meat.

    I'd probably do shrimp or scallops on it.
