Prawn salad / Gambere v solati

The downside of having a food blog is that I prefer to photograph desserts. Desserts seem most photogenic to me. Plus the fact that my greedy side is always thinking about new desserts that I want to learn how to make. Bake, take photos and eat as soon as possible! ;). I most enjoy during this process. And then, because of that, I’m just getting fatter and fatter... Slaba stran tega, da imam blog, na katerem objavljam recepte je ta, da najraje fotografiram sladice. Zdijo se mi najbolj fotogenične. Plus to, da moja požrešna stran vedno razmišlja o novih sladicah, ki jih želim osvojiti. Speči, fotografirati  in čim hitreje pojesti! ;). V tem najbolj uživam. In potem se samo redim in redim…
Although the name of the blog called Neja’s bakery sounds pretty cool, I want to be more versatile. Therefore, I have the category Menu on my blog, because I want to publish as many different recipes as possible, not just desserts. And my thighs are about to burst out, if I don’t slow down a bit :D! In addition, I want to spice up everyday meals and so I will publish recipes for main dishes more often. Čeprav zveni blog z imenom Nejina pekarna precej cool, si želim biti bolj vsestranska. Zato imam tukaj kategorijo Menu, ker želim objaviti čim več različnih receptov, ne samo sladic. Pa še moja stegna bodo vsak čas počila, če se ne bom malo umirila :D! Poleg tega si želim popestriti vsakodnevna kosila in zato bom večkrat objavila glavne jedi.
I'm not a big fan of seafood, it just straight up stinks to me. Of course I eat fish, prawns ... but I haven’t tried some more challenging seafood. I ate pizza with seafood for the first time about 6 years ago and I almost threw up. Even worse was the experience with seashells. My God how it sucked! I like prawns in salad. It’s a little different salad, but it’s great because it makes you feel full and a lot of healthy stuff is going into it. Irrespective of what I just wrote, expect the following recipe to be sweet, because it’s already photographed =).

With love, Neja
Nisem velika oboževalka morske hrane, naravnost smrdi mi. Seveda jem ribe, gambere…samo kakšnih večjih morskih podvigov se pa res še nisem lotila. Morsko pico sem prvič jedla kakšne 6 let nazaj in skoraj bruhala. Še hujša pa je bila izkušnja s školjkami. Moj bog kako zanič! Gambere v solati mi pašejo. In taka malo drugačna solata je super, ker je nasitna in veliko zdravega se dogaja v njej.  Ne glede na to, kar sem ravno napisala, pričakujte, da bo naslednji recept sladek, ker je že fotografiran =).

Z ljubeznijo, Neja
