My family really enjoyed these! (Even my 15 month old!) The bison was for sure the star of the show! Everything grilled up quite nicely with the exception of the scallops. I decided to save a couple dollars and go frozen. This was a mistake! The texture was not great! I'll be buying fresh from now on.
Otherwise, even the veggies were great!
Use small, whole mushrooms too. They survive the grilling a lot better than cuts quarters/halves of larger ones.
The couscous salad had amazing flavor and was wonderful as a left over the next day as well. I'll be making both again!
I really enjoyed the flavors in this recipe. The Bison sure did surprise me as I was nervous about how it would taste. This was very good all the way down to the couscous! Now I was not able to get fresh scallops and that was NOT a great idea to use frozen!! Most of the scallops almost seemed like they was going to fall apart. (yes a few did) They just did not have the texture that fresh has. I would go as far as saying when I make this again cause I will YUMM! I am going to try frozen shrimp if I can not get my hands on fresh next time. This is my third time trying out couscous and this recipe I am finding it so flavorful. Although I did leave out the Feta since I did forget that at the store. I say even if you are skeptical like I was do give this a try I don't think you will be disappointed!
