Thai Shrimp Curry With Lettuce and Basil-Lime Couscous

“YUM-O -- Haven't made this yet, but plan to very soon!!. Saw Rachel Ray make it today on "30-Minute Meals" I know it will be delish and it will take longer then 30 minutes to prepare, at least for me... I finally made this and it is so delicious and yes, it took me more then 30 mins. NOTE: You can buy whole roasted red peppers at the grocery store (usually in a jar) or you can make them yourself. I used Roasted Red Bell Peppers
