Frequent question: How do you cook on a plancha grill?

How to grill on a plancha: Place the plancha over high heat until very hot, about 4 minutes. Then brush the grill with olive oil and sprinkle with coarse salt (same procedure whether using a flat or ridged grill pan). Place food to be grilled on the plancha. Keep the heat on high to get a good sear on the food.

Do you use oil on a plancha?

Apply a small amount of oil to the plancha and spread evenly using a paper kitchen towel. Use tongs or a scraper to apply a thin and even coat across the surface. This will rapidly smoke and darken the surface of the steel. Allow time for the oil to bake in and then repeat the process at least 4 times.
