  1. Bring the water to a boil in a saucepan; stir couscous into the boiling water and cook until couscous absorbs all the water and is cooked through, 10 to 15 minutes.

  3. Stir couscous into onion-raisin mixture; cook and stir until heated through, about 5 minutes. Season couscous mixture with salt and pepper; add lemon juice. Remove skillet from heat and stir butter into couscous mixture.
