Total Time: 20 min
Prep: 10 min
Inactive: 5 min
Cook: 5 min

Yield: 4 servings
Level: Easy


1 cup whole wheat couscous
1/4 cup dried apricots, chopped (or golden raisins)
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup 2-percent plain Greek yogurt
1 tablespoon prepared hummus
2 tablespoons chopped fresh mint or dill
Kosher salt
1 1/4 pounds medium shrimp, peeled and deveined, tails removed
1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon hot paprika
Juice of 1/2 lemon


Preheat the broiler to high. Combine the couscous, apricots and 1 tablespoon of the olive oil in a bowl. Add 1 1/4 cups very hot water, cover with plastic wrap and let sit until all of the water is absorbed and the couscous is tender, about 5 minutes.

Stir together the yogurt, hummus, mint and 1 to 2 tablespoons water in another bowl. Season with salt and set aside.

Toss the shrimp, tomatoes, the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil and paprika together. Spread out on a baking sheet and broil until the shrimp is opaque and cooked through, about 4 minutes. Drizzle with the lemon juice.

Fluff the couscous with a fork. Divide the shrimp and couscous among 4 plates. Scrape any of the drippings from the baking sheet into the yogurt-hummus sauce. Serve the shrimp and couscous with the sauce.
