Here, it’s matched with shrimp, fresh tomato, white wine, garlic, and lemon. A hint of butter makes a surprising difference, contributing a level of richness to the flavor of the light sauce. Ingredients2 3/4 cups chicken broth 2 1/4 cups pearl (Israeli) couscous 1 tbsp. extra-virgin olive oil 1 tbsp. butter 1 clove garlic, minced 1/2 lb. frozen cooked shrimp, thawed 1/4 cup dry white wine 1 tomato, diced Salt and pepper 1 tbsp. freshly squeezed lemon juice 2 tbsp. chopped parsley to garnishInstructionsBring broth to a boil in a 3-quart saucepan and stir in couscous; turn heat to low, simmer, uncovered, 6 minutes. Remove pan from heat, cover, let stand 10 minutes. Heat olive oil and butter in a medium skillet until butter is melted. Add garlic and sauté for 1 minute (do not brown).
