What's best to use to stick this to plasterboard? Is Grip fill grab adhesive ok? This is 2/3mm sheet stainless steel without any board on the back.

Yes should be fine. I fixed a homemade aluminium sheet just using silicone, it ain't going nowhere. You have a very large surface area to weight ratio, your only real concern is slipping while the adhesive cures so you will need to do some form of propping or a use a combination of glues such as silicone for the main ares and hot melt glue on the corners.

Most kitchen fitters I've come across use silicone. More flexible than GripFil and pretty instantaneous sticking
