In saucepan, heat oil over medium heat. Add sausage; cook until browned, about 3 minutes. Using slotted spoon, transfer sausage to bowl. Add onion and thyme to saucepan; cook over medium heat, stirring, for 5 minutes or until softened. (Add a little water if sticking to pan.) Stir in garlic and paprika; cook, stirring, for 1 minute.

Stir in tomatoes with juices and 1 cup (250 mL) water. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat; boil uncovered for 3 minutes. Add tilapia, reserved sausage and sugar; reduce heat to medium and simmer uncovered until fish is cooked through, 3 to 5 minutes.
