A Midwest fish meets the Middle East!
Mix together the za’atar, lemon juice, lemon zest, minced garlic, salt, and pepper, until uniform. Spread over or mix with raw fish. Let sit for 15 minutes covered. Grill as kabobs or bake as fillets.
Grilling: preheat the grill and keep it hot. Kabobs take about 3 minutes per side to cook.
Baking: cooking time depends on fillet thickness. An average 8-oz fillet cooks in 10-12 minutes in a 425 °F oven.
