One-pot prawn couscous

Serves 4
450g cooked prawns, tails on
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp smoked paprika
Salt and black pepper
1 tbsp olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3 garlic cloves, crushed
180g couscous
480ml chicken stock
60g frozen peas
30g shelled pistachios, chopped
Fresh parsley, chopped, to garnish



  1. In a bowl, season the prawns with the cumin, smoked paprika, salt and pepper and toss to coat.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat and cook the onion and pepper for 4-5 minutes until the onion is translucent. Add the garlic and cook for another minute.
  3. Add the couscous and chicken stock and bring to a boil, then reduce the heat to medium. Cook for about 10 minutes or until all of the stock has been absorbed. Add the peas and prawns and cook for two minutes until prawns are just heated through.
  4. Divide between serving bowls and garnish with pistachios and parsley.
