Salmon Summer Salad
Posted By Ben On June 17, 2009 @ 10:13 am In Lunches | 19 Comments
I am very proud with myself becuase I’ve lost 5 pounds in the last 2 weeks. Now I need to keep them off by eating light meals and keep working out. Summer is the perfect time of the year to do this. The markets and stores are now filled with fresh produce and my favorite fruit, mango, is available almost everywhere. That’s why I will be featuring a lot of mango recipes in the following weeks and months so brace yourselves, HA!
Yesterday, I had a salmon fillet that I wanted to eat for lunch with a salad, but I had no idea how to prepare it. So I asked my friends in twitter and facebook to give me some ideas. Their ideas helped me decide what to make for lunch. The flavors worked really well in this dish.
The main reason to prepare this salad was to take another picture for the Food Photographers Club assignment. I really didn’t like the first salad I tried to style so I decided to give it another shot. I got the book Digital Food Photography by Lou Mana and I’ve been trying to put into practice some of the advice he gives about the topic. Although I liked this picture more than the first one, I think that the styling still could be improve. I talk more about this and some of the tips I’ve learned on the forum. Please visit and give me your opinion about the shot.
