Moroccan Shrimp over Couscous

READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by Kozmic Blues

The sweetness of the golden raisins is a nice compliment to the smokey cumin in this dish. This recipe was adapted from one I found in Real Simple magazine. It might be nice to add a little "heat" to this dish too. Some cayenne pepper or a small chili might compliment the fragrance of the cinnamon and sweet raisins. I would have liked to garnish this with cilantro, but used scallions instead!

I tried this one evening but had dried cherries instead of raisins. It was so good. My DH actually asks for it! :)
