I absolutely love to make this recipe for me and Tom. It is light, refreshing, and filled with sweet lobster and lemony yumminess.
The couscous takes only takes 5 minutes to cook and is also a great money saver because it is very versatile. You can make it with meat or seafood, or you can serve it vegetarian.
I like to make this when I hang out with my friends in the Hamptons, which is known for lobster rolls. It adds that fancy element without the cost of a lobster roll. Even Tom likes this dish, and he doesn’t like lobster!
Tips for Perfect Couscous:
- Replace water with chicken or vegetable stock. This guarantees more flavor added to those tiny couscous grains.
- I chop up garlic and put it in the pot while the couscous boils. Because the couscous is so small, it really absorbs the flavor.
- I add a small pinch, about 1/8 tsp, of red pepper flakes to the couscous to add slight heat that gives the couscous a little more depth.Try these tips and let me know what you think!
