Shrimp with Whole-Wheat Couscous

Even healthier than the regular version, whole-wheat couscous pairs perfectly with shrimp and green beans.

    My family did not care for this, the presentation reminded me of something they serve for lunch at my son's school. Individually I love all the ingredients but it's combined result was less than stellar. Following dinner I actually threw away this paper based recipe because I will not be making it again.

    very fast and easy to make. shrimp is expensive but the cost balances out with the low prices of the other ingredients. super lite and healthy. But also quite tasty. I used frozen peas instead of the green beans because that's what I had laying around. Served with soy sauce on the side. Not necessary but was nice to have both tastes
