  1. Put oil in a broad skillet over medium heat; add onion, garlic and thyme. When onion turns golden, add tomato and some salt and pepper. Turn heat to high; when tomato breaks down, add 1/2 cup of water or white wine.
  2. When liquid returns to a boil, lower heat and add peas and mackerel. Cover and cook for 10 to 15 minutes, or until mackerel is done (a thin knife pierces thickest part of fish with little resistance).
  3. Put mackerel on a serving plate, covered with peas and sauce; serve with bread.
