Couscous, an ideal pasta for speedy cooking, pairs nicely with baby shrimp and juicy mango. You can enjoy this dish immediately or cover, refrigerate, and be prepared to serve later for a cool lunch on a sunny summer day.

1 cup water

1 cup couscous

1 tablespoon olive oil

1 ½ cups jarred mango in 1-inch chunks

½ red bell pepper, finely chopped

2 tablespoons finely chopped jalapeño, or to taste

1 teaspoon minced garlic

5 ounces (1 cup) cooked salad shrimp

Salt to taste

Heat the water, until hot but not boiling, in a small saucepan over medium-high heat. Remove the pan from the heat; stir in the couscous. Let stand, covered, for 5 minutes or until the liquid is absorbed.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in a medium skillet over high heat. Add the mango, bell pepper, jalapeño, and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 4 minutes or until the mango is softened but not mushy.

Fluff the couscous with a fork and stir into the sauté pan. Stir in the shrimp. Season with salt.
