The method

  1. Preheat the grill to medium.

  3. Combine the tomatoes, onion, parsley and garlic. Add lemon juice to taste and the remaining oil from the canned mackerel. Break the mackerel fillets into small pieces.
  4. Top the toasted baguette slices with the tomato mixture, followed by the mackerel. Finish with a grind of black pepper, and serve with the lemon wedges.
