  • A day in advance, combine olive oil with the paprikas.
  • Prepare a brine of 1 cup lemon juice and 1/2 cup salt. Brine steaks for 20 minutes, then rinse in cold water and set aside.
  • In a large skillet, spread cilantro, bell peppers, and onions. Arrange tomatoes over all and place garlic around. Place fish on top of tomatoes. Season with tumeric, pepper, salt, and sugar. Barely cover with cold water, cover pan, and bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat and simmer until fish just becomes opaque, 20 to 30 minutes.
  • Uncover pan and spoon in the paprika infused oil, avoiding the actual paprika that will have settled to the bottom of bowl. Simmer 5 minutes, then adjust for salt.
  • Plate fish with sauce and stewed vegetables on individual plates, garnished with fresh cilantro and lime wedge.
