Have no idea where I got this recipe some 40 or so years ago! It was a favorite with my family. I like to use couscous but it also works well with cooked rice. The measurements, as listed, should stuff 4 "average-size" home-grown peppers. If using particularly large or small ones, adjustments may need to be made. Shrimp all those years ago were cheap. But even still, sometimes the budget was tight. Those were the times there was more couscous and less shrimp in the stuffing!! Still good, though.
