Shrimp Couscous

If you've been wandering around The Sweet Life for very long, you probably know that I started this blog in order to participate with Tuesdays With Dorie, which is an Internet baking group. And if you've stuck around lately, you've noticed that I haven't participated in Tuesdays With Dorie for about a month. And that's because I was beginning to see my weight inch up the scale little by little. So here at The Sweet Life, David and I have been cutting back a little bit.

Generally speaking, when you think about cutting back, you probably think about eating lots of chicken, and maybe some fish. That's what we do around here...we eat a lot of chicken, but sometimes I get tired of it. Like right now. So tonight, I tried out a new shrimp recipe, which turned out to be delicious. It's not that exciting to look at, but here are a couple of pictures, anyway...
This picture turned out really bright. It looks nice...clean and healthy.
This one was taken about 12 inches away from the other photo, and look at how different the light is! This one seems a little more "moody."
Anyway...enough with the pictures. Here's the recipe!
Shrimp Couscous
1 onion, chopped
2 garlic cloves, minced
1 Tbs. olive oil
1 zucchini, chopped
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
1 tsp. thyme
1/8 tsp. red pepper flakes
1 lb. shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 cup couscous
salt & pepper, to taste
