Lemon and Dill Shrimp with Cous Cous

I have pretty much eliminated all meat from my diet at this point but I do love seafood.  The rest of my family though has no desire to give up meat so seafood is a good compromise for us.  This simple dish was not only delicious and easy to make, it looked like a fancy gourmet meal.  That worked perfectly since Real Food Jr. was spending the night with a friend so Mr. Real Food and I had a dinner date night at home!  This recipe takes less than 30 minutes to make too!  I served it with this Spinach Tomato Salad for a beautiful, delicious, and healthy dinner.
