Heat the oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven over medium heat.
Add the onion and bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until softened, about 6 minutes.
Add the tomatoes, broth, garlic, and 1/4 cup of the cilantro; bring to a boil.
Reduce the heat and simmer, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 10 minutes.
Ladle about half of the mixture (2 cups) into a blender or food processor and let cool about 5 minutes.
Blend until smooth and return to the pan.
Stir in the coconut milk and bring to a simmer.
Add the tilapia and shrimp; cook until just opaque in the center, about 5 minutes.
Stir in the salt and the remaining 1/4 cup cilantro.
