There are better qualified food photographers than me but I find the narrow depth of field unsettling. If it was used to isolate an particular area, I would understand, but here it serves no purpose. I would prefer a sharp foreground tapering towards OOF at the rear edge of the plate. My thoughts anyway.

I would like a little more depth of field fading more toward the far side of the plate.

thank you for your critiques,I preferred a close up frame to reveal the details and give to peaple an idea of the flavor of the meal, and for the shallow depth of the field,the idea is to give depth effect in the photo (translated)

Mouth-watering shot. Would sure love to try that couscous. Normally, I would have preferred a medium aperture for a bit more DOF (and peak overall lens sharpness), but you did a great job in using the shallower DOF for leading the eye to the uncontested "stars" of that dish, those undoubtedly-delicious mussels. Which could have been easily overpowered by a clutter of additional detail.
