Cole & Mason Za'atar Seasoning Blend
Eat our Za'atar Seasoning Blend with a fish dish, instead of lemon. Fish like salmon and halibut are usually served with lemon juice. Za'atar's blend of sesame seeds, thyme, sour sumac and salt give fish a different dimension. Add it before baking or grilling for an extra lift.
Why not try warming up salads and breads. Use za'atar to make pitta chips. Split open a pitta bread, lightly spread the za'atar seasoning over it, then grill. Cut it into triangles and dip into houmous. All kinds of salads get a lift from za'atar too. Use it to liven up a light pasta salad or a leafy side dish.
This blend of seeds has been part of Middle Eastern culture for thousands of years. It's mostly used in cooking, but you can also find it in medicine and perfume.
Za'atar's long-standing popularity is most evident in Lebanon. For many Lebanese people, it's the aroma of childhood and a symbol of national pride. A mixture of za’atar with olive oil is a common spread on Lebanese bread.
