Stuffed tomatoes are a favourite in Andalucia either cold or baked with a drizzle of olive oil. This recipe calls for a browned manchego cheese topping with the tomatoes themselves being stuffed with a combination of mackerel fillets, diced onion, basil and pepper. Great Spanish tapas for the summer that add both flavour and colour to the table.
