|Salt||1 cup "light" unsweetened coconut milk|
|2 tablespoons vegetable oil||1 cup frozen peas|
|1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined||1 1/2 cups chicken stock|
|6 ounces fresh shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and thinly sliced||1 tablespoon butter|
|3 garlic cloves, grated or finely chopped||Zest and juice of 1 lime|
|1-inch piece fresh ginger, peeled and grated or finely chopped||1 cup fresh basil leaves, shredded|
|4 scallions, white and green parts chopped into 1-inch pieces||2 cups chopped iceberg lettuce, small head|
|1 jarred roasted red pepper, chopped||1/2 cup chopped peanuts, to pass at the table|
|2 tablespoons mild or hot red curry paste||1 1/2 cups couscous|
Heat the vegetable oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the shrimp and toss for 2 minutes, then add the mushrooms, garlic, ginger, scallions, salt, and red peppers and cook for 3 to 4 minutes more, tossing constantly. Stir in the curry paste and coconut milk, reduce the heat to low, and simmer for a few minutes. Stir in the peas and cook just long enough to heat through.
In a saucepot, bring the chicken stock, butter, and lime zest to a boil. Add the couscous and stir. Turn off the heat, cover the pot, and let stand for 5 minutes. Add the basil and lime juice to the pot and fluff with a fork.
Serve the couscous topped with a layer of chopped lettuce, then a few ladles of red curry shrimp. Garnish with the chopped peanuts.
