Veggies Ingredients:
1 celery stick
1/2 cucumber
1/2 red bell pepper
1/2 yellow bell pepper
6-7 cherry tomatoes
A handful of finely chopped cilantro
1/4 preserved lemon (skin only)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Salt and pepper (to taste)

Shrimp ingredients:
10 large shrimp
Zest of 1 lemon
6 hole garlic cloves
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Red chili flakes (to taste)
1/4 cup olive oil

2 cups cold cooked couscous (amount to your taste)

Step 1 – Prepare the Veggies
Trim the leafy part of the celery stick, slice the celery stick lengthwise, and dice into small pieces.
Cut the cucumber lengthwise, slice into thin sticks, and dice into small pieces.
Slice off the top of the red pepper, pull out the seeds, cut the peppers in half and remove the white inner strips. Slice the pepper half into thin strips and chop into small pieces.
Do the same with the yellow bell pepper.
Chop the cherry tomatoes into quarters.
Finely chop the cilantro.
Remove the pulp of the preserved lemon, we are only using the skin. Chop it finely.
Here are all our ingredients: cucumber, red pepper, celery, cherry tomatoes, cilantro, yellow pepper, and preserved lemon.
Mix all the vegies together.
Add olive oil, salt, and pepper. Mix.

Step 2 – Cook the Shrimp
On medium heat, heat the olive oil in a cazuela or skillet.
Add the garlic cloves and cook for a few minutes so all the garlic flavors infuse the oil.
Add the shrimp to the cazuela. Sprinkle salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and lemon zest. Mix and cook for a few minutes until the shrimp changes color and becomes opaque.
Once done, remove the shrimp from the oil and reserve.

Step 3 – Mix It All
In a large plate, mix the veggies with cold cooked couscous. Click the link on the screen to learn how to cook couscous.

And that’s it – plate in a large glass, decorate with a whole shrimp and cilantro, and serve right away.
Hmmm…. So yummy! Bon appetite!
