Modified version of a Jane Brody recipe. You can substitute sliced surimi sticks for the shrimp or scallops but, if you do so, do not add until salad has been dressed and tossed or the surimi will shred. Cooking (passive) time also includes chilling time.

  1. Steam broccoli 5 minutes, drain and refresh under cold running water; place in large bowl.
  2. Add scallions through seafood.
  3. Bring the chicken broth to a boil in a medium saucepan. Add the couscous, parsley and thyme, and cook 30 seconds; remove pan from heat, cover tightly and let stand 5 minutes.

  5. Add the couscous, while still hot, to the vegetable mixture; add the dressing and toss to combine well.
  6. Chill at least 1 hour.
  7. Sprinkle with chopped pecans, pine nuts or other nuts of your choice before serving.
