Harissa Shrimp with Couscous, Tomatoes, and Mint

Rice is always a staple for Asian meals. This Harissa Shrimp with Couscous, Tomatoes, and Mint recipe is best served and eaten with rice!

Total time: 30min Serves 4


  • 2 tablespoons Harissa Spice
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice, divided
  • 1 tablespoon lemon zest, divided
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • About 1 tsp. kosher salt, divided
  • 1 pound shelled and deveined large shrimp (26 to 30 per lb.)
  • 1 cup couscous
  • 4 firm-ripe tomatoes, halved
  • Chopped fresh mint leaves
  1. Heat grill to high (450° to 550°). In a small bowl, combine harissa, 2 tbsp. each oil and lemon juice, 2 tsp. zest, the cumin, and 1/2 tsp. salt. Put shrimp in a medium bowl, toss with half the sauce (reserve the rest), and let stand 10 minutes. Thread shrimp onto metal skewers.
  2. Prepare couscous as package directs, adding remaining 1 tsp. zest. Fluff with a fork and gently stir in 1 tbsp. oil and remaining 1 tbsp. lemon juice and 1/2 tsp. salt. Set aside.
  3. Brush tomatoes with remaining 1 tbsp. oil. Grill shrimp and tomatoes, covered, turning once, until shrimp is opaque and tomatoes are softened, about 4 minutes. Serve with couscous plus a sprinkle of mint, more salt to taste, and remaining sauce.
