A quick and easy weeknight meal. Hope you all will love this one!

Yield: 2 servings


Israeli couscous or Pearl couscous- 2 cups
Chicken broth - 2.5 cups
Onion - 1, chopped
Garlic - 2 cloves, finely chopped
Shrimp - 1 lb (peeled and de-veined)
Green beans - 2 cups, Chopped to 2 inch pieces
Cremini Mushrooms - 2 cups, chopped
Tabasco Sauce - 4 tbsp + 1 tsp
Dry white wine - 1/2 cup
Olive oil - 2 tbsp + 1 tbsp
Freshly ground Black pepper - As desired
Salt - To taste


1. Marinate the shrimp in Tabasco sauce and keep aside.
2. Bring the broth to a boil in a pan. Add the couscous, simmer for 5 mins, remove from heat and keep closed for 10 mins. Fluff with a fork and keep aside.
3. Heat 2 tbsp olive oil in a pan. Add the marinated shrimp and fry on each side for about 2-3 minutes on each side. Sprinkle some salt and black pepper. Transfer to another bowl and keep aside.
4. In the same pan, add a tbsp of oil. When the oil heats up, add the garlic and onions, saute for a few seconds. When the onion sweats, add the chopped mushrooms and green beans. Mix well, cover and cook for about 5 mins stirring occasionally.
5. Remove the pan from heat, add the shrimp, tabasco sauce and white wine followed by some freshly ground pepper and salt.
6. Put it back on the heat, mix well for about a minute or until the wine gets reduced.
