Melt the remaining 3 tablespoons butter in the skillet over medium heat. Add the sliced celery and onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in the lemon peel and juice; season with salt and pepper. Stir the cooked vegetables, celery leaves and walnuts into the couscous.
