1. Crumble chorizo into a wide nonstick frying pan; add onion. Cook over medium heat, stirring often, until well browned (15 to 20 minutes); if pan appears dry or mixture sticks to pan bottom, add water, 1 tablespoon (15 ml) at a time.
2. Add clam juice, broth, and cumin seeds. Increase heat to medium-high and bring to a boil. Stir in couscous; cover, remove from heat, and let stand until liquid is absorbed (about 5 minutes). Transfer to a wide serving bowl.
3. Stir in bell pepper and top with shrimp. Offer lime wedges to squeeze to taste
