Fish with Za'atar Tomato Relish

April 08, 2015

Here's a delicious and easy meal using za’atar (wild thyme) that we're passing along from our partners at Canaan Fair Trade. This recipe works with simple side dishes — sautéed spinach, sliced cucumbers or crisp salad, bread, rice, or couscous. You need to start about 30 minutes before cooking the fish. Measurements are approximate; you can use more of anything, or substitute your favorite fish or onion. Only the za'atar is indispensable!


Ingredients
4 white fish fillets (about 1 pound)
1 teaspoon + ½ teaspoon Canaan za’atar
1 small shallot or other sweet onion, chopped fine
1 large tomato, chopped coarse
3 teaspoons Canaan olive oil
fresh-ground pepper to taste

Instructions
(Serves two to four people)
Pat fish fillets dry and sprinkle both sides with za’atar, rub in. Cover loosely and refrigerate.
Meanwhile, mix the onion, tomato, olive oil, reserved za’atar, and pepper to taste. Let sit for 30 minutes while flavors blend.
To cook the fish, heat two teaspoons olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add fish, presentation side down, and cook two minutes. Gently flip fish and cook about two additional minutes, until fish flakes.
Serve with za’atar tomato relish on top or on the side, and pass extra at the table.

Sahha ow afyeh! (Bon appétit!)
