About this recipe: This extremely easy recipe was a creation of my boyfriend giving the otherwise dull couscous a nice kick and taste!

ecliptica Stockholms, Sweden

Serves: 4 

  • oil for frying
  • 250g frozen prawns
  • 2 teaspoons yellow curry powder
  • 2 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 600ml (1 pint) vegetable stock
  • 350g couscous
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Optional additions
  • cherry tomatoes, halved
  • red pepper, chopped

Prep:10min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:20min 

  1. In a pan fry the frozen prawns in some vegetable oil as they are from the freezer, no need to thaw them. Give them a good stir. Cook 2 minutes.
  2. Add curry powder and garlic and stir. Lower the heat so that the garlic doesn't burn.
  3. In the meantime in a saucepan bring stock to the boil. Add the couscous and remove saucepan from the heat. Allow to sit for 5 minutes. You should have a timer and when the 5 minutes are done, fluff the couscous before you add it to the curry and prawn mixture.
  4. Optional: chop some cherry tomatoes and sweet red pepper and mix them in the couscous for a fresher taste!


Goes nicely with soured cream that you mix with some salt and pepper and crushed garlic! Made the same thing with chicken cut in small pieces instead of the prawns and it was divine!
