Expert Tips

Catfish, so named for its barbels that resemble feline whiskers, is a bottom feeder, and the wild fish is famous for its strong, "muddy" flavor. Most of the catfish you'll find in the market nowadays, however, has been farm raised and has a milder, "cleaner" flavor.

Coleslaw mix saves the tedious task of grating by hand or fussing with the food processor. It's simply a mixture of preshredded, ready-to-dress cabbage and carrots. Use the mix in a traditional slaw, spiked with raisins in a sweet orange-juice dressing, or as a quick way to expand a stir-fry.
