In a shallow bowl, combine the smoked paprika, garlic, hot sauce, parsley, lemon juice, a tablespoon EVOO, salt and freshly ground black pepper. Add the shrimp, toss to coat and let marinate.
While the shrimp are marinating, combine the saffron, turmeric, lemon zest, butter and 1 1/2 cups chicken stock in a medium-size saucepot. Cover and place over high heat to bring up to a boil. Once boiling, add the peas, let it come back up to a boil and add the couscous. Give it a quick stir, cover the pot, remove from heat and let sit for 5 minutes.
