From the Test Kitchen

In this hands-off recipe, you’ll use two sheet pans to bake Cajun-spiced catfish, sweet potato wedges, and collard greens. (Sealing the greens in a foil packet allows them to steam in the oven, turning irresistibly tender.) Served on the side, a creamy, tangy-sweet tartar sauce is perfect for spooning over the fish.
