“A recipe from my "too tired to cook' collection which is tasty and quick with the ingredients probably already at hand. I used a stale hamburger bun for the bread and regular California almonds. Purists would use blanched Marcona almonds and a portion of a crusty baguette. Red wine vinegar would also be traditionally substituted for the lemon juice but this was what I had available.”
2 cups

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Pantry Romesco.
  2. Heat almonds in a dry saute pan until they begin to brown slightly. Place the almonds, tomatoes, roasted red peppers, garlic, bread, lemon juice, red pepper flakes and salt in a food processor. Process until pureed and add olive oil to thicken. (If calories are important, cut out or cut back on the oil.).
  3. Couscous.
  4. Place couscous in a large bowl. Add dried parsley and heated chicken broth (I just added 1 tsp of chicken soup base to 1 cup of boiling water), cover and let sit for five minutes.
  5. Saute shrimp in a small amount of oil until pink, add about a cup of the Romesco sauce, stir and serve on top of couscous. Leftover sauce goes into the fridge for fish, eggs, or whatever you wish.
