Directions

  1. Toast almonds in a skillet over medium heat until the nuts just began to brown. Stir in the honey making sure to coat the nuts. Spread the mixture on tin foil to cool; when the almonds have cooled completely break into small pieces.
  2. Bring water to a boil in a 2 quart or larger sauce pan and stir in the couscous. Cover the pot and and simmer for 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until all the liquid has been absorbed. Remove from heat and stir in the almonds, lemon zest, and salt.

This was really good. I followed the recipe as written, but after it was done I tasted it and it needed something else. So I squeezed some lemon juice and lemon pepper seasoning. Next time I will also double or triple the amount of Almonds.

This was incredible easy to make! I found that using the non-stick type of foil was best to keep the honeyed almonds from sticking to the foil. This had a delightful flavour, but I would suggest adding about a teaspoon of grapeseed oil, to the dish.

Tasty, but I felt that the amount of honeyed nuts is not enough to add crunch and flavour to the couscous. That being said, we used the zest of one whole lemon and a combination of whole almonds and cashews chopped up. I think a touch (1/4 teaspoon maybe) of lemon pepper might give it some "zing" too. Served this with Rachael Ray's "Grilled Wasabi-Honey Shrimp".
