In a small saucepan over medium-high heat, bring 1 cup orange juice to a boil. Cook until reduced for about 10 minutes, or until reduced to 1/4 cup. Remove from heat and cool completely. Stir in 1 tablespoon cilantro, mayonnaise, 1 1/2 tablespoons chicken broth, 1 teaspoon ginger, lime juice, cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon red pepper.

Couscous

In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat add couscous and cook 3 minutes or until toasted, stirring constantly. Add 1 1/2 cups broth, 1/2 cup orange juice, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Bring to a boil and remove from heat - cover and let stand 5 minutes. Fluff with a fork. Add onions, almonds, and butter, stirring until butter melts. Cover to keep warm.

Shrimp

In a large bowl, toss together shrimp and egg white. In a shallow dish, mix together the panko, 1 teaspoon cilantro, 1/2 teaspoon ginger, and black pepper. Dredge the shrimp into the panko mixture to coat.

In a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat, add oil and arrange shrimp in a single layer in pan. Cook 2 minutes on each side or until done. Portion out couscous, top with shrimp and drizzle each with the sauce. Serves 4
