    Rita~'s Note:

    Citrusy, fruity salad! For the vegetarians sub the shrimp with tofu. Great to bring on a picnic or potluck. A light balanced meal for those hot summer days.

      I found the flavours of this recipe very interesting. I used ginger marmalade for the prawns and they were delicious. For the couscous I used vegetable stock, orange juice, and a bush tucker chutney of mango native mint chutney. I just loved the result, had it yesterday on a hot day and it was so refreshing. It is tangy but I like that. I also used both parsley and basil. Will do my couscous this way again, it really is different and seems so Queensland to me.

      I made this for the World Tour 2 just thinking it was quite interesting. HA! We love it and will make it again, experimenting with these wonderful flavors of sweet and spicy! I added just a bit of my own mango chutney and a little less marmalade, tripled up the cayenne, whew! a little hot for me but wonderful! I added a bit of chopped roasted asparagus I was already serving with the meal to get my points for the Tour Challenge, and I used Israeli Couscous, cuz that's the only kind I like! Another keeper, Rita! Thanks!

      This is a great recipe to start from. I added veggies to the couscous salad (cherry tomatoes, cucumber, apple). I served it with the shrimp, hot from the grill (unpeeled), on top of the couscous. A wonderful dish for these hot summer days. Thanks for posting!
