    1. Preheat the oven to 200 C / Gas 6.
    2. For the topping, heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the onion for 4-5 minutes. Add the oats and apricots and cook for 1-2 minutes. Stir in 100ml water, the herbs and season well. Cool slightly.
    3. Press the topping onto the flesh side of the mackerel and place on a large baking tray. Add the cherry tomatoes on the vine and bake for 15 minutes until cooked throughout.


    Capers and chopped olives will work well instead of the apricots.
