   So today I present you something different. Something that I have never done before (ever!) and you can look at it from both sides - I have never made a post about food on this blog and I had never cooked Couscous before. Usually I get inspired very easily. For example, inspiration to cook something like this took me just one step into the grocery store next to my school. Success!
   I did not think that this experiment would turn out so good, so I was not sure whether I would post the recipe here, but it turned out very good (and simple!) so here you go:
   To make this experimental food, you will need such things as:
  • Couscous (d`ooh)
  • Olive oil
  • Red pepper
  • Green peas
  • Salt
  • Curry
  • Garlic
  • Shrimps
  • Butter



   I am not really the best chef you could find around here, so my recipe will be pretty primitive. I started with the Couscous because it takes longer to make than the shrimps (thaw them before cooking). 
 
Couscous:

  1. Start boiling about 250ml of water for your Couscous to rest in;
  2. Here you can get your inner crazy chef out and put various spices in the water. I added 1 tablespoon of olive oil, 1 clove of garlic, little bit of salt and curry (I added curry before and after putting in the Couscous);
  3. Then somehow figure out how much Couscous you will need to make that hunger go away (I filled one cup with it);
The shrimps:
  1. Take a pan big enough for all the shrimpies so that they do not cover each other and make that thing hot enough to melt butter on it;
  2. Now take approx 50g of butter and melt it on the hot pan;
  3. While the butter suffers, clean the garlic and crush all the cloves so that it looks like in the picture below: 



        4. Then put all of the garlic on the buttery pan and stir it non-stop for approx 2 min;
      5. Now put the shrimps in (check on them all the time and turn them around so both sides are well cooked and do this for about 3 minutes till they look close to orange) and smile because you are almost done;



   My Couscous looked like this (still in the cooking process) without any vegetables. I think it looks quite acceptable for the first time:


   And at the end you add all the vegetables you want while the Couscous is still in the cooking pot. Mix it all together, put it all on a plate, add shrimps on the top of it and INSTAGRAM THAT #FOOD! Congratulations! You are done and it took you only about 20 minutes. 


Hope you enjoyed this post. If any questions, please ask them in the comment section below. 
Bon appétit!
