Grill onion after seasoning well with Olive Oil and salt & pepper. Also grill the shrimp after seasoning with Olive Oil and salt & pepper. Meanwhile, bring 1 1/2 cups water to a boil in a large saucepan. Stir in the couscous, 2 Tbs. olive oil, and 3/4 tsp. salt. Cover, remove from the heat, and set aside. Set the zucchini cut side down on the grill and cook, flipping occaisonally until it browns and softens but doesn't turn mushy, 6 to 8 minutes. Return the zucchini to its original bowl and toss to pick up any spices clinging to it. Reduce the heat to medium (if using a charcoal grill, put on the lid and partially close to air vents. Grill the shrimp, turning once, until just pink and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes. Coarsely chop the zucchini and onions and stir them into the couscous, along with the cilantro, orange zest, and orange juice. Salt and Pepper to taste; add a little more orange juice to taste. Serve immediately with the shrimp.
