'"The omega-3 fatty acids in salmon decrease inflammation to provide glowing skin," says Devin Alexander, celebrity chef, New York Times bestselling author and weight loss expert, who tops the salmon with sesame seeds to help fight premature aging. "The vitamin A, C and E in onions also protect the skin from aging by fighting free radicals and UV rays," she explains. (Here are more essential foods for beautiful skin.)'– Alexis Farah
Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Spray a medium baking sheet with cooking spray. Make sure to remove all of the bones from the salmon. Then cut it into chunks and place it into a food processor fitted with a metal chopping blade. Process the salmon until there are no longer large chunks. Add the minced onion and ginger root and process it again until it almost forms a paste, but small chunks remain. Transfer the mixture to a medium mixing bowl and add the egg whites and salt. Mix until combined. Next, spread the mixture evenly over the tops of the three slices of bread. Cut each slice across the diagonals, vertically, and horizontally to form 8 triangles, from each slice of bread. Pour the sesame seeds into a shallow bowl. One triangle at a time, dip each triangle into the sesame seeds to cover the tops and sides. Then place each triangle, so they do not touch, on the prepared baking sheet. When all of the triangles are covered in sesame seeds, place the baking sheet in the oven and bake the triangles for 6 to 10 minutes until they are cooked through (the salmon should be a pale color throughout). Remove the triangles from the oven and transfer them to a serving platter. Serve immediately. Makes 24 triangles.
