Moroccan-Jewish Fish Filets with Red Peppers

1/4 c Vegetable oil or olive oil
2 Red bell peppers stemmed, seeded diced
20 Garlic cloves, minced
6 tb Minced cilantro
1 1/2 lb Sea bass or halibut filets
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 ts Paprika
2 c Water


Heat the oil in a saute pan large enough to hold fish in a single layer. Add the peppers and saute lightly over medium heat for 2 minutes. Add garlic and cilantro and cook over low heat, stirring, for 1 minute.

Add fish and sprinkle with salt, pepper and paprika. Add water and bring to a simmer, basting fish occasionally. Cover and cook over very low heat about 8 minutes, or until fish is just tender (when a thin skewer is inserted into center of fish, it should come out hot to the touch).

Using a slotted spoon, transfer fish to a deep platter. Boil the pan juices, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 1/2 cup. Taste for seasoning, then pour over fish. Serve hot or cold.
