    I made this with the couscous and golden raisins and we really liked it. The combination of flavors was unique and delicious. It was also fairly quick to prepare. I will definitely make it again.

    This dish is delicious and easy to prepare. I highly recommend it. For people with shellfish allergies, try using cod or another firm white fish in place of the shrimp. The recipe will be just as flavorful.

    Since I am allergic to shrimp, can you suggest a fish or could I use chicken in this dish? What would be the cooking time if I used chicken?
