This recipe is the first Fish sandwich that I have ever created. Let me just say that I was so excited about the wonderful flavor combinations that I took it over to the neighbors to sample. After taste testing they asked for the recipe and the leftovers!!! Don't be put off by number of ingredients, this recipe is super easy to make!

How to Make Spicy Salmon Sandwich with Ginger-Peperoncini Aioli

Step-by-Step

  1. To prepare Ginger-Peperoncini Aioli combine the first 4 ingredients in a small dish and chill in the refrigerator.
  2. To make Spicy Citrus Marinade combine the first 7 ingredients PLUS one tbsp lemon juice in a large zip-lock bag; shake to combine. Remove 2 tbsp. and reserve for brushing on bread.
    Add the remaining 1 tbsp. lemon juice and the peperoncini juice to the zip-lock bag; shake to combine; add fish fillets. Marinate in refrigerator for at least 30-40 minutes.
  3. After brushing a little oil on grill heat to medium-high. Carefully grill fish fillets for 2-3 minutes on each side, or until toothpick inserted in the center of fillets comes out dry, or fish is done when it flakes easily with a fork.
  4. Prepare Ciabatta by brushing the reserved marinade over the surface area of the bread, cut sides up. Place bread (cut-side down) directly on grill rack, grill until edges just begin to brown, about 1-2 minutes.
  5. Assemble sandwiches by generously spreading the bottom buns with Ginger-Peperoncini Aioli. Layer lettuce, cucumbers, 2 slices tomato (on each), and salmon fillets*, top with desired amount of sliced peperoncini. Place bun on top and enjoy!! *For easier eating you may flake fish with a fork and distribute evenly over sandwich.
