Fresh and fragrant za'atar works well as a quick marinade for monkfish, but it's also delicious with chicken and roasted vegetables.
We love this Farmdrop recipe for its speed and ease (it only takes 20 minutes!) If monkfish isn't in season, then use other meaty white fish as a substitute -- like sea bass or halibut.
2 tbsp Rooted Za'atar
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp butter
1 red onion, sliced
1 tbsp pine nuts
To season: salt and pepper
To serve: green salad
Preheat the oven to 180℃.
Mix the za'atar with the olive oil, a pinch of salt and pepper. Rub the za'atar mix into the monkfish fillets, place in a roasting dish and bake for 8-10 minutes.
Melt the butter in a saucepan, add the onion and cook for 5 minutes to soften. Add the pine nuts and cook for 5 minutes more, to colour.
Serve the monkfish on top of the caramelised onion and pine nuts.
