This quick dinner recipe of couscous, white beans and shrimp is flavored with a potent parsley-and-basil dressing.

4 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Preparation

  1. Place parsley, basil, lemon juice, 2 tablespoons oil, garlic, anchovies (if using), capers, salt and pepper in a blender or food processor. Blend until smooth, scraping down the sides as needed.
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are pink and firm, about 4 minutes; transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon (leave any liquid in the pan). Return the pan to the heat, add 1 cup water and bring to a boil. Stir in couscous, cover and remove from the heat. Let stand for 5 minutes.
  3. Fluff the couscous with a fork; stir in beans and half the dressing. Stir 1 tablespoon water into the remaining dressing. Serve the shrimp over the couscous, drizzled with the remaining dressing.
