Toast couscous in a skillet over medium heat until lightly golden, stirring every minute or so.
Pour coconut milk in a small saucepan and heat until almost boiling, but not quite.
Add toasted couscous, honey, and dash of salt and stir quickly.
Cover the pot and remove from heat; let sit for 15 minutes.
During this time, the couscous will absorb the liquid.
Once couscous has absorbed all of the liquid, add in the toasted almonds, apricots, and shredded coconut.
