Cook ingredients that you are used to cooking by other techniques, such as fish, chicken, or hamburgers. In other words be comfortable with the ingredients you are using.

Kitchen Quick Tips - Garnishes

Garnishing even a very simple dish will take it from ordinary to special. Choose the ingredient (eg. garnish lemon pepper white fish with parsley and lemon slices) you want to highlight from the dish then garnish with that to give a visual clue as to the flavour of the dish. Alternately choose your garnish from an ingredient that offsets your dish (eg. spicier soups garnish with a dollop of sour cream or yogurt).
