Welcome, Brad.

I'd use the same thinset mortar used for the rest of the shower.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Welcome Brad.
Using the same thinset as you did for your tile will work fine. Just use an appropriate sized trowel to get full coverage (probably 1/2 by 1/2 square notch). I did a very similar bench and asked the same question. The manufacturer of the synthetic stone recommended an S2 flexible mortar, so rather than cheap out and save a few bucks I got a bag of Ultralite S2 to use. I hindsight, it was probably overkill.
Make sure if both sides are polished, to rough up the mortar side so it has something to bite into.
