I know Gina many years ago through email exchanges but we only met about two years ago at Disneyland in Anaheim.
Gina came to town and I was too excited that I punctured all four (yes, all four) tires in her hotel parking lot by driving over the one-way car park spikes, totally blind to the “DO NOT ENTER” sign.
We still couldn’t stop laughing about it. But honestly, this is just how I am; totally clumsy, careless, and I simply can’t seem to see or follow instructions. I get too giddy and excited when meeting new friends.
We recently reconnected while I was in New York City. I introduced Gina to the amazing Malaysian food, while chatting and catching up.
I had no doubt that her cookbook would do very well, as I know just how hardworking and dedicated she is. All her successes are not by luck or chance, but her passion, drive, talent, and diligence.
The Skinnytaste Cookbook features 150 amazing recipes: 125 all-new dishes and 25 must-have favorites. All the recipes in the cookbook come complete with calories and nutrition information.
The pictures in the cookbook are gorgeous. I chose to make this salmon because I love the sweet and spicy flavor, plus who can resist Sriracha chili sauce?
The salmon turned out moist, juicy, with the perfect balance of sweetness and heat. I absolutely enjoyed the dish.

- 1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce or tamari* for gluten-free
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1 tablespoons rice vinegar
- 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce to taste
- 1 tablespoon grated fresh ginger
- 1 tablespoon minced garlic
- 1 pound (0.4 kg) wild salmon fillet, cut into 4 (4 oz./115 g) pieces
- 1 1/2 teaspoons sesame oil
- 2 tablespoons chopped scallions for garnish
- In a 1-gallon zip-top plastic bag, combine the soy sauce, honey, vinegar, Sriracha, ginger, and garlic. Add the salmon, toss to coat evenly, and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours, turning the fish once.
- Remove the salmon from the bag, reserving the marinade. Heat a large saute pan over medium-high heat ad add the sesame oil. Rotate the pan to coat the bottom evenly and add the salmon. Cook until one side of the fish is browned, about 2 minutes. Flip the salmon and cook until the other side browns, 2 more minutes. Reduce the heat to low and pour in the reserved marinade. Cover and cook until the fish is cooked through, 4-5 minutes.
- Place a piece of salmon on each of 4 serving plates and sprinkle with the scallions.
