Shrimp with Fruited Couscous

Rated as 3.5 out of 5 Stars

"This easy shrimp changes expectations on recipes worthy of backyard barbecues. An herb-yogurt-balsamic marinade brings a pop of tangy flavor to the skewered seafood. Serve on a bed of so-simple couscous dotted with orange peel and dried cherries."

  1. Thaw shrimp, if frozen. Peel and devein shrimp, leaving tails intact (if desired). Rinse shrimp; pat dry with paper towels. Place shrimp in a resealable plastic bag.
  2. Combine the VOSKOS(R) Nonfat Vanilla Greek Yogurt, water, balsamic vinegar, vegetable oil, and rosemary in a bowl. Pour more than half of the mixture over the shrimp in the resealable bag; seal bag. Turn bag to combine mixture and coat shrimp. Marinate shrimp for 30 to 60 minutes in the refrigerator, turning occasionally. Reserve remaining marinade; chill.
  3. Drain shrimp, discarding marinade. Thread shrimp on four 12-inch skewers leaving a 1/4-inch space between shrimp. For a charcoal grill, place skewers on the grill rack; cover and grill directly over medium coals for 5 to 8 minutes or until shrimp are opaque, turning once and brushing with reserved marinade after turning. Discard remaining marinade. (For gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place skewers on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as directed.) Serve with couscous.
  4. Fruited Couscous: Combine chicken broth and orange juice; bring to boiling. Stir in couscous; cover and remove from heat. Let stand 5 minutes. Stir in orange peel, green onions, and dried cherries. Serve with shrimp.


  • Tip: To broil shrimp, prepare as directed above. Place skewers on unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat for 5 to 8 minutes or until opaque, turning once and brushing with reserved marinade after turning.

We did not care for this. We ate it for dinner but threw the rest out because no one wanted it as leftovers. My husband described it as "shrimp fruit-loops". Not a fan.

It was very good... I really liked the flavors...
