Note: For dried chickpeas, soak 1/2 pound (1 1/4 cups) overnight, drain, rinse, and cook in water to cover for 1 to 1 1/2 hours, depending upon their age. If you don't have time for overnight soaking, cover the chickpeas with cold water, bring them to boiling, turn off the heat, cover the saucepan, and set them aside for an hour, then cook them as directed above.
Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
Remove and discard the whole peppers, if you used them. Add the cumin to the chickpeas and spread half the mixture in the bottom of a 9-inch-square baking dish. Place the fish on top, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and finish with the remaining chickpeas. Drizzle the remaining 3 tablespoons of olive oil over the top. Cover and bake in the preheated oven for 30 minutes, until the fish is just flaky but not falling apart; check after 20 minutes.
Serve the fish hot or warm, garnished with cilantro or parsley and lemon wedges.
