Add the tomatoes, sugar, and 1 teaspon salt and saute until the tomatoes begin to release their juices. Pour in 1-1/2 cups water and deglaze the pan, stirrin gand sraping up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan with a wooden spoon.

Transfer the tomato-spice mixture to a large Dutch oven. Partially cover and cook over low heat for about 15 minutes. Uncover and add the fish, stirring gently to coat with the sauce. Partially cover and cook until the fish is opaque throughout and the sauce is thick, about 30 minutes longer. Check the sauce halfway through the cooking time; if it seems to be getting too thick, stir in more water, about 1/2 cup at a time . Season to staste with salt.
