Earthy saffron is lifted by peppery green onions in this quick side dish. Serve with the halibut to soak up the tasty juices. Halibut recipe is posted also Triple-Pepper Steamed Halibut.
- Bring broth to a simmer in a small saucepan. Add saffron, stirring to dissolve. Cover and keep warm.
- Heat oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add couscous; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add broth mixture, hot sauce, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Cover, remove from heat, and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork; stir in onions.
This was very good. I didn't add the salt. Went really well with grilled chicken. Nice simple lunch that was enjoyed by all. Next time, I might kick it up a notch and add garlic. Thanks. :)
An easy side that complimented the lentils I served it with very well. Since the chicken broth provided enough sodium, I opted to leave off the salt.
Fantastic! I love the smell saffron imparts-it fills the whole house up! Omitted the hot pepper sauce because I served this with #183742. Great yet simple recipe for a last minute meal! Thanks for sharing it! cg
