Mandarin Orange Sauce, Creamy Sesame Splash, Soy Syrup
Scott & Gina Lee have been my dear friends for many many years. They opened Gina Lee’s Bistro, an Asian Fusion restaurant in Redondo Beach, over a decade ago. A while back I offered to help Gina start a blog so on this night I took some photos of the food as it was leaving the kitchen.
For dinner, I enjoyed the Thai Marinated Sea Bass paired brilliantly with a glass of Etude Pinot Gris from Scott’s eclectic wine list.
Irene Virbila from the Los Angeles Times wrote, “Everything from Gina Lee’s kitchen tastes fresh and vivid. There’s also a logic to how flavors are woven together.”
I couldn’t agree more. The flavors are just so vibrant…
When you are in Southern California, I recommend a visit to Redondo Beach to have dinner at my friends’ fabulous and unique restaurant. And be sure to tell them Lori Lynn sent you 🙂

Sea bass for me too, please…
Hi Simona – they have so many great fish dishes, I also love the whole crispy catfish with ponzu.
Oh everything looks delicious. Lori Lynn, I was thinking of you yesterday. Barilla is having a photo contest on table settings. You are so good at this you should enter. Go to their site and check it out. The winner gets a 500 gift certificate at Williams Sonoma 🙂
Maryann – thanks for thinking of me!!!
I will definitely check out the table setting contest. It used to be my hobby. I would compete in the table setting competition every year at the Los Angeles County Fair until one year I was disqualified! My gorgeous entry of a Valentine’s table set in BED (with rose petals and Champagne and caviar) was too much for the judges, oh my!
Now, I am content to set the table in my home for guests, and I sure have plenty of accessories!
Thank you so much, can’t wait to look into it!
A very nice blog. I stoppped and read on and on. worth time spent.
What a beautiful array of food here! Intense colors, flavors, and freshness really speak to me in your photo’s! Lucky you, to have friends so talented! I would take Maryann’s advice you would be perfect for that contest Lori Lynn!
Oh my goodness, heaven help me get over this ugly food-envy! I know I would enjoy every single morsel of all of these fabulous temptations.
Please think a fraction of a moment of me here, no such food anywhere in sight. I may book myself on a flight ….. *help*
