  • 1 cup(s) Whole wheat coucous
  • 1/4 cup(s) Dried apricots, Chopped
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Olive oil
  • 1/2 cup(s) Greek yogurt
  • 1 tablespoon(s) Hummus
  • 2 tablespoon(s) Fresh mint or dill, Chopped
  • Kosher salt
  • 1-1/4 pound(s) Medium shrimp, Peeled and deveined, tails removed
  • 1 cup(s) Cherry tomatoes, Halved
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) Hot paprika
  • 1/2 Lemon


  1. Directions
  2. Preheat the broiler to high. Combine the couscous, apricots and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a bowl. Add 1 1/4 cups very hot water, cover with plastic wrap and let sit until all of the water is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 5 minutes.

  3. Stir together the yogurt, hummus, mint and 1 to 2 tablespoons water in another bowl. Season with salt and set aside.

  4. Toss the shrimp, tomatoes, the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and paprika together. Spread out on a baking sheet and broil until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Drizzle with the lemon juice.

  5. Fluff the couscous with a fork. Divide the shrimp and couscous among 4 plates. Scrape any of the drippings from the baking sheet into the yogurt-hummus sauce. Serve the shrimp and couscous with the sauce.
