This is one of the best couscous dishes I have had! Great combination of flavors. I made a couple of changes, though. We don't care for raisins, so I used dried cranberries, and since they are sweetened, I left out the sugar. I use a spicy curry powder, so this had a nice bite to it. And loved the crunch of the toasted almonds. Went great with a salmon filet. Made for Best of 2011 game.
