  1. Preheat the oven to 375°F (190°C). Mix the allspice, paprika, ginger, and chiles with the olive oil. Add a pinch of salt and lots of pepper. Coat the fish with most of the spice mixture. Toss the sweet potatoes with the remaining spice mixture and place in a roasting pan. Put in the oven to roast for 15 minutes.
  2. Add the fish to the pan and roast for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are cooked-the fish will by cooked by then as well. Sprinkle with the cilantro and serve warm.
