Couscous with chia seeds, veggies and shrimps

Hello my dear readers,

Ready for another super easy recipe?

Here we go:

Couscous with chia seeds, veggies and shrimps

A super healthy and delicious meal 😉

Ingredients for 2 persons:

  • one zucchini
  • one red pepper
  • two carrots
  • zest from one lime
  • salt, pepper and a little bit of butter
  • 250 g shrimps
  • half cup of couscous
  • half cup of hot water or broth
  • 1 tablespoon of chia seeds

How to do it:

Wash and cut the veggies in small pieces but not too small as you don’t want them to become purées.

Sauté the veggies in a pan over medium-high heat, with a little bit of butter, water, salt & pepper and let them cook until just starting to wilt, for around 10 minutes with the lid on.

In the meantime wash and steam the shrimps for around 2 minutes. I like to use the ones with the tails on. Once done, add them to the veggies.

Add the lime zest and stir everything together over a medium-high heat for another 2-3 minutes.

Prepare the couscous. I use a ratio of one to one but I recommend to follow the instruction from the package.

In a bowl add half cup of hot water or broth if you wish, add the couscous, the chia seeds, stir well, cover, and let the couscous steam for 2-3 minutes. When you lift the lid, the grains will appear flat in an even layer. Use a fork to fluff it up and break up the clumps for light and fluffy couscous.

Now all you need to do is plate everything and enjoy it 😉
