When it comes to deliciousness, these shrimp are swimming in it! You’ll give them a quick sear and then rest them on a stunning salad set for a fall evening.

Boil the couscous
Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the couscous; stir gently to separate. Boil, 8 to 12 min., until tender. Drain and transfer to a large bowl. Add 1 tbsp butter (double for 4 portions); season with ⅓ of the spices. Stir until the butter has melted and set aside in a warm spot.

Make the cilantro sour cream
In a medium bowl, combine the mayo, sour cream, vinegar, all but a generous pinch of the cilantro and ½ tbsp water (double for 4 portions); season with S&P. Stir well, using the back of your spoon to bruise the cilantro against the sides of the bowl.

Cook the shrimp
Pat the shrimp dry with paper towel and remove the shells from the tails if desired; season with the remaining spices and S&P. In a large pan (non-stick if possible), heat a drizzle of oil on medium. Cook the shrimp* in a single layer, 1 to 2 min. per side, until opaque and cooked through. Add the remaining cilantro and toss well.
