    Peel the aubergine, peppers and tomatoes and cut into small dice. Remove the outer layer from the spring onions and thinly slice. Cut the courgette into small dice.
    Add a drizzle of olive oil to a large saucepan. Sweat the spring onions and the peppers with a pinch of salt. Cook for 3 minutes before adding the aubergine and courgettes. Season, add the water, cover and cook for 5 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook for 3 minutes. Season with salt and piment d'Espelette to finish.
    Remove 100g of the ratatouille from the pan and place in a food processor with the sun blushed tomatoes and 100ml water. Blend until smooth and then pass through a fine sieve to obtain a smooth puree.

    Place the bream in the oven and cook for 5 to 6 minutes.

    Serve the bream alongside the ratatouille. Finish with a drizzle of the puree to serve.
