                    This was a huge hit at our Father's Day cookout! I was afraid the marinade would be too spicy for the kids, but I would not call it spicy at all (I did only use 1 1/2 jalapenos bc they seemed stronger than normal). The sausage was the spiciest part, and I used the apple sausage for the kids. We will definitely use this recipe again! The couscous was easy and great too! I'll have to make it again because the saffron is so expensive I refuse to let it go to waste! ;-)
