Heat oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat.
When oil is hot, add bell pepper, onion, and garlic and cook until soft (about 7 minutes).
Add pepper, cinnamon, lime juice, olives, and chiles; cook for 1 more minute.
Add tomatoes and bring mixture to a boil; cook until thickened (about 10 minutes).
Place fillets in a lightly greased baking dish just large enough to hold them.
Pour sauce over fish and bake in a 350° oven until fish is just slightly translucent or wet inside when cut in thickest part (10 to 15 minutes).
Stir in capers just before serving.
