  2. Add the pasta to a pan of boiling salted water and cook according to the pack instructions, for about 8 mins. Add the samphire for the last minute (or asparagus tips/broccoli for the last 3 mins).
  3. Meanwhile season the cod, drizzle with a little oil and arrange the halved slices of chorizo on top. Put on the hot baking tray and grill for 5 mins.
