Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Put the kettle on to boil and tip the shrimp into a small bowl. Add all the lemon zest, juice from 1 lemon, garlic, paprika and 1 tbsp of oil.
  2. Mix well then set aside for a few minutes.
  3. Put the couscous into a large bowl, pour over 1 cup boiling water then cover and set aside for 10 minutes.
  4. Heat a non-stick frying pan. Add 1 tbsp of the shrimp marinade, the zucchini and a splash of water. Stir fry for 4-5 minutes until the zucchini are golden, then tip onto a plate and set aside. Add the shrimp to the pan with their marinade and fry for 1 minute until just pink. Fluff up the couscous with a fork and mix in the zucchini and cilantro, remaining oil, lemon juice and seasoning.
  5. Lastly, scrape in the shrimp with all the pan juices and toss together briefly before serving with extra lemon wedges for squeezing.
