Delicious, both with the Lamb Shanks, and with other dishes. It adds a lot of flavor to couscous, which can be bland. We've had this camping (easy to do on a camp stove), with kabobs (especially if there is lemon juice in the marinade), with the lamb, and with chicken. I have never ried it with the preserved lemon, only with the lemon juice and peel, but we also enjoy this side.
Notes: Preserved lemons are available in gourmet food stores. If you can't find them, use 2 teaspoons grated lemon peel and 3 tablespoons lemon juice.
