Martha Stewart’s Mouth-Watering One-Skillet Shrimp & Couscous Can Be Dinner-Ready in Less Than 30 Minutes

Between work, kids, and general adulting, we don’t always have a ton of time to make dinner before our snuggle sesh on the couch begins. That’s where one-skillet meals come in handy. Not only do they cook up in a jif, but they also result in less dishes and less clean-up, which is a good thing any time of year. Martha Stewart’s one-skillet shrimp and spicy couscous is perfect for those busy autumn nights, and best of all, it comes together in just 25 minutes in your favorite cast iron skillet.

On March 8, Stewart shared a mouth-watering recipe with the caption, “A one-skillet dinner that borrows flavors from chile verde, this shrimp with zucchini and spicy couscous gets tang and heat from the salsa, and earthy notes from canned green chiles.

Stewart says that this dish is inspired by chile verde, and one of the key ingredients is green salsa (she recommends Xochitl). Canned chopped green chiles (we like ’em fire-roasted) add a kick to the dish as well.

The other key ingredients in the dish make sense if you’re trying to cook quickly. Shrimp only needs a couple of minutes to cook through, and couscous is way faster to make than either rice or pasta.
