Chicago Shrimp and Couscous

A quick meal best prepared on the grill for maximum flavor.


  1. Preheat grill to medium heat.
  2. In a large bowl, toss together shrimp, mushrooms, red pepper, green beans, salt, pepper, cayenne pepper, lemon zest, lemon juice and 1 tablespoon oil.  Let rest for 5 minutes at room temperature.
