Anna Hansen presents a beautifully fresh dish for May. As the evenings grow lighter and longer you can take the rewarding time to gently braise fresh borlotti in white wine, fennel, leeks, bay and smoked paprika. The creamy and unctuous beans are a perfect foil for the sweet and vibrant yellow courgettes that are roasted with a rub of lemon verbena gremolata. Sea bream has a wonderfully clean taste and meaty texture that will absorb the zesty smokiness of the courgettes and borlotti. This is a dish to rejoice in summer's approach and is as soothing as it is invigorating.
