Quick One Pot Shrimp & Pearl Couscous: Mediterranean Diet

Ingredients for 4 servings

* Optional Substitution Note

  • Shrimp
    • 1 1/2 lb raw shrimp
    • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
    • sea salt & pepper
  • spray avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 red bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 green bell pepper, sliced
  • 1 tablespoon avocado oil or olive oil
  • 1 cup  uncooked pearl (Israeli) couscous
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Italian seasoning
  • 1 tablespoon fresh garlic, minced
  • 2 cups no-salt added chicken broth
  • 1 can (14.5oz) diced (fire roasted) tomatoes
  • fresh basil to taste, chopped or roughly pulled
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest
  • fresh lemon juice to taste
  • Garnish
    • fresh parsley, chopped

Steps

Step 1

In a bowl, mix together the ingredients for the shrimp and set aside to marinate while you continue cooking.

Step 2

Place skillet or pan on HIGH heat. Once hot, lightly spray with oil, then toss in bell peppers. Sear for 3 to 4 minutes, or until the edges have browned and the veggies are crisp-tender. Remove from the skillet and set aside.

Step 3

Reduce heat to MEDIUM. (Note: make sure the pot is NOT still super hot before proceeding with the next steps) Add couscous and oil. Toast the couscous for about 1 minute or 2, until the outside is golden brown. While the couscous toasts, sprinkle in remaining Italian seasoning and garlic and stir.

Step 4

Pour in the chicken stock. Reduce the heat to a low simmer, then cover and cook for 6 – 8 minutes, until about 90% of the liquid has been absorbed by the couscous.

Step 5

Add tomatoes, shrimp and peppers to the skillet. Stir well, ensuring nothing is burning. Cover and cook for an additional 5 to 7 minutes until the shrimp has cooked through.

Step 6

Garnish and enjoy!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Hey, I'm Kevin

My name is Kevin. My life changed when I realized that healthy living is a lifelong journey, mainly won by having a well-balanced diet and maintaining an active lifestyle.

By experimenting in the kitchen and sharing my meals on Tumblr, I learned healthy eating is not boring! By making a few adjustments to my favorite foods, I could design a diet that could help me achieve my wellness goals while satisfying my desire for BANGIN food! 😅 Now I try to help people around the world realize that same level of freedom in eating regardless of budget. Welcome, let's #DemocratizeWellness together!
