Brown the chorizo slices in the olive oil.  Remove all but 2 tablespoons of the oil in the pan, add the onions and garlic and saute until the onion is soft.  Add the paprika and crushed red, stirring for about 1 minute.  Add the wine and boil down for about 2 minutes.  Add the tomatoes and the water, then simmer for 15 minutes.  Add the peppers and chickpeas, then simmer for another 15 minutes.

Gently stir in the fish and simmer for 7-10 minutes.
