Yield Makes 4 servings
Those who love the bold Mediterranean flavors of puttanesca sauce and grilled fish will love this hearty open-faced sandwich featuring grilled bread topped with peppery arugula, halibut, and a garlicky tomato salsa strewn with bits of olives and capers.

Ingredients

  • 4 (6-ounce) halibut fillets, rinsed and patted dry
  • Extra-virgin olive oil
  • Kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 8 slices Italian bread
  • 2 garlic cloves, halved
  • 1/4 cup mayonnaise
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 cups loosely packed arugula leaves, cleaned and dried
  • Grilled Puttanesca Salsa

How to Make It

  1. Heat grill to medium-high. Lightly brush fish with olive oil, and season to taste with kosher salt and black pepper. Grill fish over direct heat until firm and opaque throughout, about 4 to 6 minutes per side. Fish should flake easily but remain moist. Brush bread lightly with olive oil, and grill until slightly toasted. Rub the cut side of garlic cloves over the bread.

  2. Combine mayonnaise and mustard. Spread mayonnaise mixture on 4 slices of bread. Top with arugula, fish fillets, Grilled Puttanesca Salsa, and remaining bread slices. Serve immediately.
