Season both sides of the fish with salt and pepper, drizzle with olive oil on both sides.

Add the fish to a hot pan with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, skin side down. Add 1 tbsp Za’atar to the flesh of the fish as it’s cooking. Cook for 3-4 minutes on each side or until cooked through. Once you turn the fish over add the butter to the pan.

Combine all of the ingredients for the herb salad in a bowl, season with salt and pepper to taste.
