Spray a five-quart Crock-Pot slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Pour clam juice, coconut milk, tequila, Old Bay seasoning, curry powder and red pepper flakes in to the pot.

Use a wire wisk to break up clumps of spices. Then add the carrots, corn, shallots and rinsed shrimp to the spice broth. Turn on high and cook for 1 hour.

Add peas at this time and cook for another 30 minutes.

Turn off and add orange juice and box of couscous and stir to combine with contents of pot.

Cover and let stand for at least 5 minutes or until all liquid is absorbed. Before serving, fluff with a fork and fold in cilantro.

Plate up with a quarter of a lime on the side of each serving.
