 Start to cook the bacon so that it becomes crisp. Meanwhile combine the
 mayonnaise with lemon juice, garlic, turmeric and ground cumin and season
 to taste with salt and pepper. Pan grill the bread, just until dried out or
 toasted; pan grill the tuna, only 3 minutes a side, or until rare.
 
 Remove bacon to paper towels to drain.
 
 To assemble, spread each slice of bread with mayonnaise, on one side only.
 Slice the tuna into thin diagonal pieces. Set some arugula on bottom of
 bread, then top with bacon, peppers and tuna and bread, mayonnaise side
 down; repeat and finish with third slice of bread; repeat for the other
 sandwich.
