One Pan, Two Plates is our favorite new book for easy weeknight dinners. Carla Snyder's recipes are fast, flavorful and minimal on the clean-up (which is always okay by us). Summer is the official season of the fish taco — give this warm-weather dish a twist with hearty catfish.

My siblings and I used to fish for catfish in the Ohio River when we were kids. As soon as we caught them, we’d throw them back into the murky waters, waiting for the next “big one” to take the line. Today catfish are farm-raised, and these delicious fish are perfect for fish tacos because they’re firm and hold their shape. The crunch and smoky spice of the red-and-white chipotle slaw is my favorite filling to go with these crispy fillets all wrapped up in a warm tortilla. No need to drop a line.
