another shrimp dinner

couscous, originally uploaded by organic baker.

here's my favorite duet: shrimp and couscous.

there's something about shrimp and couscous that just makes me so happy. both can be cooked in 5 minutes and that's that. as much as i love making food, a 5 minute simple yet flavorful meal is simply amazing.

dan seasoned and grilled the shrimp to his liking. he makes great grilled shrimp so let's leave it at that. seasoned with salt, pepper, a little bit of cayenne pepper and olive oil and it's a sure winner.

dump the whole wheat couscous in boiling water, turn off the heat and in 5 minutes, you are fluffing your way to happiness. i seasoned it with a dressing of olive oil, yogurt, lemon juice, cumin, curry, turmeric, cinnamon, salt and pepper. add a handful (each) of diced carrots, onions, dried cranberries, almonds and chopped parsley and it sure was divine.
