Tender and delightfully chewy, udon noodles are at the heart of tonight's flavorful, Japanese-inspired dish. We're tossing them with sautéed mushrooms, celery and carrots, for a hearty accompaniment to pan-seared catfish. A sprinkling of smoked and crumbled dulse—a type of red seaweed with a deliciously savory flavor—makes for a gourmet garnish.
