Prepared this dish as part of the Zaar World Tour and it just might be one of the best I've tried. The combination of the red onions, dates, pine nuts and harissa created a marvelous sauce that was simple to prepare but complex in its flavor - divinely characteristic of the region. Slightly sweet with an earthy spicy backnote. Used top quality Medjool dates for this and it was well worth the effort to seek out a superiour ingredient. Went so far as to share it with a friend, a native Morrocan chef, and even he waxed on about the authenticity and great flavor in this one. My only changes were to omit the butter in the couscous and shave back a bit of the olive oil in order to cut a few calories. Thank you Sackville.

This is a DELICIOUS dish! The sauce had a nice, complex flavor. Pine nut/date/harissa/onion/lemony goodness! I will definitely make this again! Even my "meat 'n potatoes" boyfriend loved it and had two helpings. :)
