Ingredients
  • 1 cup whole-wheat couscous
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Pinch of red pepper flakes
  • 2 medium plum tomatoes, diced
  • 1 small bulb fennel, halved, cored and sliced
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1/3 cup dry white wine
  • 1 15 -ounce can no-salt-added chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 scallions, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh dill
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese (about 2 ounces)
Directions

Prepare the couscous as the label directs. Cover and keep warm until ready to serve.

Meanwhile, heat 1 tablespoon olive oil in a large ovenproof skillet over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and red pepper flakes and cook, stirring occasionally, until the shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes. Transfer to a plate using a slotted spoon.

Preheat the broiler. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil in the skillet. Add the tomatoes, fennel and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are tender, about 4 minutes. Add the wine and bring to a simmer, then add the chickpeas and 1/3 cup water; cook, stirring occasionally, until the chickpeas are slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Return the shrimp to the skillet and add the scallions and 1 tablespoon dill. Top with the feta, transfer to the broiler and broil until golden, about 2 minutes. Sprinkle with the remaining 1 tablespoon dill. Fluff the couscous with a fork and serve with the shrimp mixture.
