Maple mustard shrimp is a low-maintenance, quick cooking dish dependent on buying shrimp already cleaned. The glaze takes a mere 5 minutes to throw together and the trip under the broiler less than 10.

The glaze is slightly sweet and a little tangy with maple syrup, butter, Dijon mustard, red wine vinegar and Worcestershire sauce. If you have the extra time allow the shrimp to soak up the glaze for an hour or two before broiling. You can also grill these in a grill pan or threaded on skewers.
I served my shrimp over fresh kale sautéed in garlic and couscous: a tiny, round pasta that cooks in 5 minutes. Talk about simple. All that couscous requires is a little hot water and a few minutes to work its magic. A fluff of the fork and you have a versatile grain-like pasta that is indescribably good.
Especially when it soaks up all that tasty finger-licking glaze. The starring attraction.
