This was excellent! Will definitely make again. I used frozen shrimp. I had never made couscous before & was pleased to realize that it takes no time at all to cook. This dish came together in about 25-30 minutes. I used plain couscous, but next time will try whole wheat just to make it healthier. I am never disappointed with a Rachael Ray recipe.

This is *so* yummy. Always in a time crunch, I use pre-cooked, frozen shrimp and just warm them through in the pan before proceeding. I'm also addicted to Trader Joe's whole wheat couscous, so I used that. Thanks for posting, SkinnyMinnie! :-)
