Here is what I do, all you need is kosher salt, a nylon scrub brush, and a VERY dirty grill pan.
1. Coat the pan with salt. I may have been too generous with the salt this go round so feel free to use less.
2. No water is necessary; simply start scrubbing with the nylon brush and the salt becomes a paste-like substance that helps to take the bits of food and grease right off the pan.
3. Brush the excess salt and gunk off the pan and you are done. If you need to season the pan you could brush it with vegetable oil and bake it at a very low temperature (200-250 degrees) for about 30 minutes.
The salt scrub process isn’t necessary every time. Usually you can wipe down your grill pan with a paper towel or cloth in between uses. Happy Grilling!
