Grilled Shrimp with Couscous Salad
A colorful salad of couscous, tomatoes, and watercress makes a tasty bed for skewers of grilled shrimp. If you can’t get good tomatoes, it’s better to leave the tomatoes out. Substitute roasted red bell peppers.

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
1 garlic clove, halved
2 pounds large shrimp, shelled
2 cups canned low sodium chicken broth
1 teaspoon salt
1 1/3 cups couscous
2 1/2 cups watercress, tough stems removed (from a 5-ounce bunch)
2 scallions, including green tops, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1/2 pound tomatoes, diced
1/2 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
4 lemons, for serving




Light the grill or heat the broiler. In a small saucepan, combine the oil, tarragon, and garlic. Cook over moderately low heat until the garlic just starts to brown, about 3 minutes. Remove from the heat, let the oil cool slightly, and then discard the garlic. Thread the shrimp onto metal or wooden skewers and brush with 1 1/2 tablespoons of the tarragon oil.

In a medium saucepan, bring the broth to a boil with 3/4 teaspoon of the salt. Stir in the couscous. Cover, remove from the heat, and let sit for 5 minutes. In a large glass or stainless-steel bowl, toss the couscous with the watercress, scallions, lemon juice, tomatoes, and the remaining tarragon oil, 1/4 teaspoon salt, and the pepper.

Meanwhile, grill or broil the shrimp, turning once, until just done, about 5 minutes. Serve the shrimp skewers on top of the couscous salad with lemon wedges on the side.


Wine Recommendation: Shrimp is often best with a full-bodied white wine, but with all the watercress in this salad you’ll want some acidity as well. Try a sémillon from Washington State or a sauvignon blanc from California.

Crisp Lime Brook Trout

The oil must be really hot when the fish hits the pan for the skin to turn crisp and golden. Shake the pan back and forth on the burner occasionally to keep the trout from sticking to the bottom and tearing the skin.

Brown butter is a sublimely simple sauce. Emphasize the butter’s nutty flavor with pecans, throw in a little sage and parsley, and you have an ideal topping for trout.
