Toast the cut side of the bread on the barbecue, then stuff with a piece of chorizo, some grilled pepper slices and a handful of rocket. Drizzle with olive oil before serving.
Cooking chorizo can vary hugely in length, from little thumb-sized sausages to very long coils. It doesn’t matter which you use – they will all take the same time to sizzle – just cut the very long sausages to lengths that will fit the bread.
