Prawn and tomato couscous

This prawn and tomato couscous is one of my all time favourite one-pot recipes. For the kids I will often separate the prawn and couscous so they can explore the new tastes and textures in their own time. But for my husband and I we enjoy this with some danish feta, toasted pine nuts and herbs. Yum.

Nutrition Note: Good quality prawns are a nutritious meal option. High in protein, low in fat, they contain more omega-3 fatty acids compared to red meat, chicken and pork. Prawns are also high in many vitamins and minerals including magnesium, selenium, zinc, iron and vitamin E.
