For the chermoula: Pound garlic in a mortar and pestle with the sea salt to form a paste, then add all other ingredients, and pound together until combined into a paste.
For the tagine: Preheat oven to 200C.
Remove tomatoes from chermoula marinade and rub chermoula paste into both sides of the fish and marinate for 30 minutes. Oil the tagine, then lay the potatoes on the base and place the marinated fish on top. Spread marinated tomatoes and the capsicum strips over the fish, then season with salt and pepper to taste. Mix tomato paste with water, sea salt, black pepper, sugar and olive oil and pour over the fish. Sprinkle with chopped parsley and coriander, cover tagine with foil and bake for 50 minutes.
