Wash produce before use
Cook the couscous
- Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp].
While the couscous cooks, prepare the eggplant and shrimp.
Prep and roast the eggplant and shrimp
- Remove the stem from the eggplant; cut the eggplant into 2-inch pieces.
- Peel the onion and cut into ½-inch-thick slices.
- Rinse the shrimp, then drain on a paper-towel-lined plate and pat dry.
Remove the pan from the oven and stir the vegetables. On the other end of the sheet pan [on a 2nd sheet pan], carefully toss the shrimp with 1 to 2 teaspoons oil; season lightly with salt and pepper and spread in an even layer. Return the pan [both pans] to the oven and roast, turning the shrimp once halfway through, until the vegetables are tender and the shrimp are firm and cooked through, 6 to 8 minutes for regular shrimp, 8 to 10 minutes for jumbo shrimp.
While the vegetables and shrimp roast, finish the couscous.
Finish the couscous
- Strip the mint leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves.
- Press the garlic (if you have a press)
- Measure the water for the couscous.
- Toss the vegetables with oil and seasonings.
- Strip the mint leaves.
