EXPERT TIPS

Expert Tips

Confused about couscous? It’s both a name for wheat-grain semolina, appearing in many supermarkets today as simply couscous, and for a spicy chicken-vegetable stew served with cooked semolina that’s popular throughout North Africa.

To add authenticity to the red pepper sauce you use in this recipe, look in Middle Eastern markets for fiery hot harissa sauce, a red pepper sauce from Tunisia. It’s served with traditional couscous and would be perfect with the flavors in this recipe.
