Step 1

Place the fish in an oven-safe dish. Drizzle each fish with 1 teaspoon of olive oil. Season with salt and pepper, and place a sprig or rosemary and a sprig of thyme in the middle of each fish.

Step 2

Slice the zucchinis, tomatoes and onion into thin pieces.

Step 3

Grill the mackerel in the oven for 20 minutes at 525 degrees F. If you like your vegetables well cooked, then add them to the same pan as the fish, season with salt and pepper, and the remaining olive oil. If you prefer them crunchy, add them to the same pan 5 minutes after the fish.
