How to Make It
Bring 1 1/4 cups water to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in 1/8 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon pepper, and couscous; cover. Remove from heat; let stand 5 minutes. Stir in dill, rind, and juice.
Heat a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Add olive oil and butter; swirl until butter melts. Add shallots; cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine to pan; bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes; stir in mustard and brown sugar. Remove pan from heat.
