  1. Preheat the oven to gas 6, 200°C, fan 180°C. Boil the potatoes for 10-12 mins until tender. Drain and return to the pan. Season and lightly crush.
  2. Meanwhile, heat half the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and add the onion and chorizo. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 5-6 mins until turning golden. Add the tomatoes, mix well and cook, stirring occasionally, for 2-3 mins until the tomatoes start to break down. Add the cod, cream, lemon juice and saffron. Mix well and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 3-4 mins, stirring occasionally, for the flavour to develop and the sauce to thicken slightly. Turn off the heat then mix in the parsley.
  3. Fill 2 small pie dishes (about 15cm in diameter) with the filling and top with the potatoes. Grate over the cheese and bake for 10-12 mins until the cheese is golden and the filling is bubbling. Garnish with some basil leaves, if you like.
