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.
