I made it exactly as written but skipped the feta cheese as other reviewers suggested. It was the best recipe I've tried in a long time, absolutely delicious!

This turned out to be a really easy, delicious dish that I will definitely be making again. I did not add the feta or pine nuts and felt that the dish was flavorful enough without them. Thanks for posting this keeper!

As I would expect from a fellow Bum Bag Hag, this was really delish! I followed the directions exactly, except for that I only had somewhat smaller shrimp. This resulted in the shrimp getting overcooked somewhat as the sauce reduced, but that is not the fault of the recipe! I didn't add any feta or pine nuts, and didn't miss them. Made for ZWT6, Whine and Cheese.

The Marinade and Sauce really give the shrimp wonderful flavor. The combination of ingredients for the Couscous has plenty of flavor also and next time I would add some Feta cheese. Thanks JB. *Made for SSaSSy's ZWT 6.*

Just delicious!! This recipe is so easy to prepare and impressive to serve. I made it exactly as written and we enjoyed it so much. I probably would increase the red pepper flakes next time, but it could be that the ones I used were not very potent. I also skipped the pine nuts and feta, it was perfect just the way it was. Thanks for posting! :)

5 Stars and then some !! SOOO glad I saw Karen Elizabeth's review and photo, and had all the ingredients for tonight. This is a SUPER recipe -- and "goes to the top" as DH says ! My serving looks JUST like the photo ! I, too, would add a tad more lemon juice, but DH said it was perfect ! Thanks for posting, January Bride !

What an amazing gift of a recipe! I came home late from the vet, and needed to make something Fast, what I got was delectable, simple, impressive - and fast! A restaurant meal in a jiffy! If you haven't tried couscous, here is the ideal introduction. The instructions here are spot on, the taste is out of this world. DH couldn't believe I turned this out in less than half an hour, and virtually no cleaning up in the kitchen afterwards! For me, I might have added a little more lemon, because I adore that citrus tang, but for DH the lemon was perfect, now He would have liked a little more red pepper flakes! The suggested pine nuts might be nice, but personally, I wouldn't add feta to this. As I said... it's perfect as is!!! This is a jewel of a recipe, thanks so much for sharing, JB! Made for Aus/NZ swap#35
