I don’t often make Chilean Sea Bass because it’s $29.99 a pound price tag, but when I do there are freakin fireworks! It’s never bad, but there does come responsibility with sea bass. It’s a very overfished fish and always isn’t the most sustainable so if you are going to purchase it, make sure it’s during a sustainable period. If you are all about keeping the current ocean ecosystems preserved then halibut will do just fine in this dish. I had a lot of fun creating this Grilled Sea Bass and Corn Salsa Recipe with Hatch Chiles because I got to work ingredients I rarely do in hatch chiles and sea bass. Hatch chiles are only in season for a short period of time towards the end of summer. If you are looking for another recipe with hatch chiles cause you don’t like sea food then check out this Grilled Chicken Recipe with Hatch Chile Chimichurri Sauce.
