Couscous is by no means a dish that is cooked quite often in Sierra Leone. It is one of the dishes that is reserved for special occasions such as christenings, engagement parties and weddings. There are different ways of preparing it, depending on the ingredients available at the time.
More often than not though, it is prepared with beef, carrots and runner beans and a bit of tomato paste for colour.
In this post, I am showing my prawn variation. Take my word for it, this is very easy to prepare and is very yummy too. So go on, try it and let me know what you think.
The ingredients I used are:
|In a saute pan, cook onions and chili till onions are just translucent.|
|Add prawns and cook for 5 minutes|
|Add couscous, two cups boiling water, frozen peas, stock cubes and salt. Then lower the heat and cover for 3 minutes|
|Stir through chopped fresh tomatoes, cover and leave on lowest heat for another 5 minutes.|
|Remove, from heat, fluff with fork and serve. Yummo.|
