    Delicious! I did the shrimp separately, but next time I will definitely add it in the couscous. - 10/7/12

    I modified this by using chicken, fresh tomato, no oil, and more cilantro. I might add a tad of oil next time after its cooked. It was very tasty, so thanks for the idea!! - 6/2/08

    This was so good! I made this as a side dish, so I increased the recipe. I used the leftovers for lunch the next day, stuffed in a whole wheat pita with Taboulleh. - 8/20/07

    I was extremely weary of this recipe b/c I had never had couscous, but I must say that I enjoyed it and I will make it again. For a healthy choice, it is tasty! - 6/19/07
