    This is from my Food and Wine’s One Dish Meals cookbook. It says to pair this with a sauvignon blanc. Scallops may be used in place of the shrimp.

      Amazing ! An excellent mix of textures and flavours and in a form that is light and refreshing. I added all the mint and for me it was 100 percent perfect.. DH's loved this but said he prefered slightly less mint. I used more peas and no olive oil in the couscous because we are trying to be healthier and there was already some in the shrimp, and the balance, for us at least was excellent. The chicken stock brings extra flavour to the couscous and I used homemade stock so the sodium could be greatly reduced. Please see my rating system; 5 excellent stars for a recipe that should produce such a clean plate after eating that you'll be wondering if you forgot and had already done the dishes. Thanks!
