I added more za’atar and garlic based on some other reviews, and added spinach and zucchini. I also added only half the couscous. I thought the different flavors worked well and will make it again.

I used chicken instead because that's what I had on hand, but it still worked. Easy, quick dinner.

Really really good! maybe don't need the red pepper flakes- made it a little too spicy for me, but still really good!

I think I would have preferred a different protien. The shrimp was just too light to stand up to all the strong (but good) flavors.
