Number of Servings: 4


    1 box (10 oz.) couscous
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 yellow onion, diced
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1/4 teaspoon pepper
    1 red bell pepper, diced
    2/3 cup raisins
    1 large can (28 ounce) whole tomatoes, drained and roughly chopped
    1 pound shrimp
    2 teaspoon cumin
    1 teaspoon cinnamon
    1 lemon


1. Prepare the couscous according to directions. Set aside.

2. In skillet over medium heat, heat the oil. Add the onion, salt, and 1/8 teaspoon pepper. Cover and cook until the onion is softened, 5-7 minutes. Add the bell pepper and raisins and cook for 4 minutes more.

3. Add the tomatoes and heat for 3 minutes. Meanwhile place the shrimp in bowl and sprinkle with cumin, cinnamon and remaining black pepper. Squeeze the lemon over the shrimp and toss to combine.

    Nice meal with a great kick of spice and fire in your mouth, definitely need to mix with couscous or pilaf to tone down intensity of each bite. Not recommended for kids or those that can't handle the heat! LOL. - 2/5/09
