Expert Tips

Couscous is granular semolina, the coarsely ground durum wheat used for pasta dough. Very quick to cook, couscous is convenient for weeknight meals because it does not need to be drained.

Marmalade - from the Portuguese word for quince jam, marmalade - is a fruit preserve containing pieces of citrus rind. Seville orange marmalade is the most popular type. Look for marmalade with the other preserves, jams and jellies in the grocery store.

Accompany this dish with steamed green beans and a salad of tomatoes, cucumbers and fresh Parmesan cheese.
