This Grilled Sea bass recipe perfectly combines my Italian flair with the flavors of Latin America. Italians love to marinate protein with wine and Chilean sea bass is great with this tasty technique. The wine breaks down the tissue allowing the assimilation of the flavors.

This easy recipe is great for your barbecue party! It needs to be marinate only a few hours, which makes it possible to prepare both fish and green beans in advance at home, or directly into a cooler bag.
