directions

Heat the olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the bay leaves and paprika and cook, stirring for 30 seconds. Add the onion, pepper, tomatoes, garlic and 2 tablespoons of the cilantro; season with salt and pepper. Cover and cook until the vegetables are softened, about 10 minutes.

Add the seafood broth and reduce the heat to medium low. Season the fish with salt and pepper, then nestle the pieces among the vegetables in the pan. Cover and simmer until the fish is just cooked through, about 5 to 7 minutes.
