Instructions Jump to Ingredients ↑

  1. For the loukaniko, combine all the ingredients and form patties or links depending on your preference I recommend broiling or pan frying on high heat (or grilling if available) until desired done-ness. Set aside, loosely covered in tin foil until ready to use. Reserve meat juice and fat to cook shallots.

  2. For the couscous, cook shallots on low heat either in meat juices from loukaniko or olive oil until translucent (4 -6 minutes)

  3. Meanwhile, scatter strawberries in a cookie sheet with a lip, or onto tin foil (create a lip to catch juices) and place under broiler on highest setting. Watch strawberries carefully and remove as soon as there is some blackening. The time varies widely based on your broiler. Remove and set aside until plating your finished dish.

  4. When shallots are translucent, add your cooked couscous, arugula, lemon juice and salt and pepper to taste. Turn burner up to medium and toss. Cook until heated thoroughly and arugula is slightly wilted (a couple of minutes).

  5. Plate cous cous, top with loukaniko, strawberries and a dollop of yogurt!
