One of the most important things to remember when preparing a meal, is not only ingredients that compliment each other, aromas that blend and tantalize, but also the appearance and presentation of your overall plate.

This can be accomplished using several different brightly, colored vegetables or garnishes such as Rosemary sprigs or parsley, however, you must be careful that they don't visually overwhelm or cover up the flavors of your main dish!

And honestly, do you really have those items just lying around the kitchen often?

Some simpler, less expensive advice on cooking a high presentation meal, is to use spices.

Not only do they add color, but they add just the right amount of aroma, as well as the flavors you want to emphasize.

Imagine... a dinner out... you order Grouper, broiled.  It comes to you with a lemon slice and some butter, some boiled, Red Potatoes and a mixed, steamed vegetable. Not something many would want to pay a lot for or remember the next day!

Now imagine that same dinner prepared at home, except with some Blackened Spice, perfectly broiled on to that Grouper! The spicy Cajun smells, the garlic, onions... wafting over your senses and the beautiful colors of a blackened crust!

A shake of  Parmesan Cheese with a sprinkle of Chili Powder over the Red Potatoes, just a touch to add that perfect color, flavor and texture.

And the lemon slice?  Well that would go on the crispy, steamed Asparagus, of course!

Who wouldn't remember THAT meal at your dinner party?

Or go really bold at your next cookout!  Make a real impression and shake on a whole bunch of colorful, zesty spices on your hamburgers and really shake up your boss's world! Add some Chimichurri Spice Blend or some Smoked Black Pepper.  All that flavor and color on a toasty, sesame seed bun!  No special sauce needed here!
