In saucepan, bring 1/2 cup (125 mL) water and pinch of the salt to boil. Remove from heat and stir in couscous; cover and let stand for 5 minutes. Fluff with fork. Stir in parsley.

Meanwhile, in food processor, whirl red pepper with mayonnaise until smooth; stir in garlic and cayenne pepper. Set aside.

Sprinkle chicken with pepper and half of the remaining salt. Place on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until no longer pink inside, about 12 minutes. Remove to cutting board; cut into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices.

Meanwhile, diagonally cut zucchini into 1/4-inch (5 mm) thick slices; brush with oil and sprinkle with remaining salt. Grill over medium-high heat, turning once, until translucent and grill-marked, about 4 minutes.

Cut tortillas in half; spread each half with red pepper mayonnaise. Layer couscous, chicken, zucchini and sprouts down centre. Roll up sides to form cone; secure bottom with waxed paper or long toothpicks.
