Number of Servings: 4


    170 grams frozen uncooked, peeled shrimp
    2 links Italian sausage thickly sliced
    1 medium onion coarsly chopped
    1 medium tomato coarsly chopped
    1 small jalapeno pepper, finely chopped
    1/4 cup sliced pimento stuffed green olives (about 5 or 6)
    1/2 tbsp dried oregano leaves
    1 tsp "smokey" paprika
    1 1/4 cup chicken broth (low salt)
    1 cup couscous
    1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley


Rinse shrimp in a sieve under cold running water until thawed. Set aside to drain and dry. Spray a non-stick pan with olive oil flavour PAM and set over medium heat. Add thickly sliced sausage to pan. Stir often until lightly browned (about 4 minutes). Add coarsly chopped onions to pan. Stir often until onion begins to soften (about 3 minutes).

Mix together the prepared jalapeno, tomato, garlic and olives. Add mixture to pan with oregano and half of the parsley. Cook until tomato starts to "break down" (about 3 minutes). Add broth and shrimp. Stir with a wooden spoon and bring to a boil being sure to scrap any brown bits away from the sides of the pan.

When shrimp starts to turn pink, stir in the couscous. Cover and remove from heat. Let stand until liquid is obsorbed (about 5 minutes). Fluff with a fork and sprinkle with the rest of the parsley.
