Grilled Flatfish With Pistachio-Herb Sauce

['¼ cup raw pistachios', '10 prunes, pits removed, coarsely chopped', '1 garlic clove, finely grated', '2 cups finely chopped parsley', '1 cup finely chopped mint', '¼ cup finely chopped tarragon', '¼ cup kimchi or sauerkraut brine', '2 Tbsp. Champagne vinegar or white wine vinegar', 'Kosher salt', '¾ cup extra-virgin olive oil', '1 (2–4-lb.) flatfish (such as sole, flounder, or turbot)', 'Extra-virgin olive oil', 'Kosher salt', 'Aleppo-style pepper']

Toast pistachios in a dry small skillet over medium-low heat, tossing occasionally, until browned in spots, about 5 minutes. Let cool, then finely chop.
Gently mix pistachios, prunes, garlic, parsley, mint, tarragon, kimchi brine, and vinegar in a medium bowl to combine; season with salt. Whisk in oil, then taste and season spoon sauce with more salt if needed.
Prepare a grill for medium heat. Using a chef’s knife, cleaver, or serrated knife, cut fish crosswise into 2"–4"-wide planks (the larger the fish, the wider the planks); halve planks if fish is large. Pat fish dry, rub all over with oil, and season with salt and Aleppo-style pepper. Grill fish, undisturbed, until about 70 percent cooked through (use a knife to slide into flesh to check), about 5 minutes. The skin should release easily from the grate when the fish is ready to turn. If it’s sticking, keep cooking.
Using a large fish spatula, turn fish over and grill until cooked through (fish is done when a paring knife easily pierces the flesh along the side), about 2 minutes.
Transfer fish to a platter and spoon sauce over.
