Heat oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add onion, and cook until soft, about 5 minutes.
Add zucchini, garlic, and salt. Stir, and cook for about 5 minutes or until crisp tender. Stir once or twice to prevent sticking. If needed, add a few tablespoons of water, and cover.
Add canned mackerel. Stir, and cover. Cook until the zucchini is tender, 5 to 10 minutes.
Just before serving, sprinkle with parsley, and offer lime wedges at the table.
During autumn, try peeled and diced butternut squash in place of the zucchini for a colorful variation. Versions with canned salmon or tuna are also delicious.
