Remove from heat, stir in couscous and cover with a tight-fitting lid. Stand for 10 minutes or until liquid has been absorbed. Tip couscous onto a tray, fluff with a fork, then cool for 10 minutes.

To serve, melt butter in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add couscous and toss until lightly toasted and warmed through.
