I must have made this a dozen times.  This is so quick (about 10 minutes if your shrimp are already peeled) and it tastes great.  I love the fresh flavors of the garlic, lemon, and parsley.  I use the seasonings pack that comes in a standard box of couscous for more flavor.

  1. In a saucepan, bring 2 cups water to a boil.
  2. Stir in the couscous and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cover and let sit off heat for 5 minutes; fluff with a fork before serving.
  3. Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon of the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  4. Add the garlic and scallions and cook for 30 seconds. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring, until they begin to turn pink, about 3 minutes.
  5. Stir in the beans, parsley, lemon juice, remaining 2 tablespoons butter, 1 teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
  6. Cook until heated through, 2-3 minutes.  Serve with couscous.
