We love making these during the peak of tomato season when the grape and cherry tomatoes are extra juicy and flavorful. This also happens to be when you’ll find farm-raised catfish at some of the best prices of the year. Serve this up with a crisp salad and a tall glass of lemonade and you’ll have a good-for-you favorite your family will love.

What You'll Need

  • 4 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 4 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup white wine
  • 4 (6-ounce) US Farm-Raised Catfish fillets
  • Salt for sprinkling
  • Black pepper for sprinkling
  • 2 tablespoons slivered fresh basil

What to Do

  1. In a medium skillet over medium heat, heat 2 tablespoons oil until hot. Sauté garlic and red pepper flakes for 1 minute, or until garlic is golden. Add tomatoes and cook 8 to 10 minutes or until they start to blister and soften, stirring occasionally. Add lemon juice and wine, and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat remaining 2 tablespoons oil until hot. Sprinkle catfish with salt and black pepper and sauté 6 to 8 minutes or until golden and fish flakes easily with a fork, turning halfway through cooking. Serve fish topped with blistered tomato mixture and basil.

Tuna Twist

We teamed a pasta salad with a tuna salad to come up with this dish that's summertime-perfect and very budget-friendly. Our Tuna Twist is a new take on an old recipe that's great for a light summer dinner. Or you can take this tuna pasta salad to a picnic or potluck (where it'll be the first thing to disappear!).
