ingredients

directions

  • In a medium bowl, combine the garlic, oregano, lemon juice, salt, pepper and shrimp. Mix gently and refrigerate for 30 minutes.
  • To make the couscous, combine the bell pepper, broth, pepper flakes, salt and olive oil in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil.
  • Stir in the couscous, cover and remove from the heat for five minutes.
  • Lift the lid and fluff the couscous with a fork. Set aside while cooking the shrimp.
  • Remove the shrimp from the marinade. Discard marinade.
  • Heat the 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large saute pan until very hot and add the shrimp, making sure not to crowd the pan.
  • Cook for about 2 minutes per side, until the shrimp curls and is almost opaque.
  • Add the wine, scraping up the brown bits from the pan. Allow the wine to reduce by almost half, for about 2 to 3 minutes.
  • Remove from the heat, add the butter and swirl in until it has thickened the sauce. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper if needed.
  • Place a scoop of couscous in shallow bowls and top with shrimp. Drizzle sauce over the top.

    I made it exactly as written but skipped the feta cheese as other reviewers suggested. It was the best recipe I've tried in a long time, absolutely delicious!

    This turned out to be a really easy, delicious dish that I will definitely be making again. I did not add the feta or pine nuts and felt that the dish was flavorful enough without them. Thanks for posting this keeper!

    As I would expect from a fellow Bum Bag Hag, this was really delish! I followed the directions exactly, except for that I only had somewhat smaller shrimp. This resulted in the shrimp getting overcooked somewhat as the sauce reduced, but that is not the fault of the recipe! I didn't add any feta or pine nuts, and didn't miss them. Made for ZWT6, Whine and Cheese.

    The Marinade and Sauce really give the shrimp wonderful flavor. The combination of ingredients for the Couscous has plenty of flavor also and next time I would add some Feta cheese. Thanks JB. *Made for SSaSSy's ZWT 6.*
