Recipe by Chef John
"The amazing thing about couscous is how fast it 'cooks' and how versatile it is. This is one of those recipes that should give you lots of ideas to create your own combinations. By the way, this is the 'home' version; the traditional method used to cook this dish uses a steamer called a kiska, sometimes called a couscoussier in French cuisine. Garnish with lemon."

Simple and quick if you assemble/prep all the ingredients early in the day.I made this exacly as directed and we both thought it was very good. I kicked it up a bit when I reheated the leftovers by adding some of my preserved lemons to it. That made it divine. I might add some sundried tomatoes next time around too. Thanks for another winner Chef John.
