  1. Preheat the oven to 200°C/400°F/Gas 6. Quarter the pepper and onion and halve the tomato.
  2. Arrange in a shallow roasting tin, season well and sprinkle with the dried mixed herbs. Spray with oil and bake for 25-30 minutes until tender.
  3. Meanwhile, remove the crusts from the bread and gently roll each slice with a rolling pin. Spray one side of each slice with oil and press, sprayed side down, into the base of 4 x 10cm/4in non-stick Yorkshire pudding tins. Beat the egg and brush over the top of each slice. Bake for 12-15 minutes until crisp and golden. Allow to cool for 10 minutes in the tins.
  4. Chop the roasted vegetables roughly and mix together. Flake the Princes Mackerel in a Rich Spicy Tomato Sauce into the mixture and pile into the bread cases. Return to the oven for 5 minutes. Serve immediately with salad and garnished with basil leaves.
