Shang Tsung: Would you consider serving a sorcerer?

Erron Black: On a hot skillet with beans, maybe.

Shang Tsung: I will not extend the offer twice.

I found this on this website: Meaning of the phrase 'hot off the skillet'

But I still can't comprehend the dialogue.


The offer is to work for a sorcerer.

The response is a suggestion that he might provide someone with the sorcerer's flesh for food -- cooked on a hot skillet with beans as a dish -- a very cynical and forceful rejection.
