Love this recipe. I find the 300g of cous cous is huge even for 4 people so I usually do 200g and it's perfect. I also add the chickpeas with the seafood.

Stir through the chickpeas at the same time that the frozen seafood is added...they take about 10 mins to warm through. 350-400g frozen mixed seafood for 2 people is about right. the recipe can't be stretched much further than that unless you prefer small portions. If you like spice add an extra 1/2-1 tbsp. of harissa paste.

The ingedients include a tin of chickpeas but the instructions don't tell you what to do with them; I left them out. We find 1 tin of tomatoes and 400g bag of frozen fish pieces is good for 2 of us, if you follow the recipe and service 4, you get less than 100g of fish each!

Since the chick peas were not added in the instructions but are in the ingredients-I added them with the seafood and it worked perfect. I used large(pearl/Isreali) whole wheat couscous and it was delicious. My family is not so fond of the regular couscous but enjoy the larger size. Very tasty recipe!

I added a teaspoon of Ras el Hanout for fragrance.

Delicious recipe. I added a touch of smoked paprika at the same time as the Harissa.
