{Gluten-Free} Salmon, Prawn, and Zucchini Pasta #fishfridayfoodies

It's time for Fish Friday Foodies' October event. We are a group of seafood-loving bloggers, rallied by Wendy of A Day in the Life on the Farm, to share fish and seafood recipes on the third Friday of the month. This is, easily, my favorite recipe sharing event of the month. I always come away with a list of recipes that I just have to try!

This month, Claire of Sprinkles and Sprouts is hosting. She asked us to toss some fish or seafood into pasta and share it with you all. 

So, after three years of being gluten-free - he doesn't have Celiac disease or any other medical condition that requires him to be gluten-free - Jake has decided he will ease back into gluten, but he does want to focus more on consuming lower carbs. And, after three years, of adapting recipes or, sometimes, making two different dishes for dinner, I am elated. But I still have a cupboard full of gluten-free pasta!

So, I'm sharing this recipe with gluten-free pasta, locally-caught wild salmon, prawns, and the last of the summer squash. It's a quick, easy dinner. But, first, here's the #FishFridayFoodies collective pasta bowl...

Salmon, Prawn, and Zucchini Sauce

  • 1/4 C olive oil + more for serving
  • 1/2 C diced white onion
  • 2 C diced zucchini and/or summer squash
  • 2 T water
  • 1/2 pound salmon (deboned and cut into large cubes)
  • 1/2 pound prawns (if you can, I prefer wild - not farmed - and local seafood)
  • 1/4 C wine (I used a Rosé)
  • sea salt
  • Also needed cooked pasta (I used gluten-free) and grated cheese for serving

Peel prawns, devein, and chop into bite-size pieces.

Heat olive oil in a large, flat-bottom pan. Add onion and cook until softened and translucent, approximately 3 to 4 minutes. Stir in the zucchini and add the water. Cover and cook until the zucchini is tender, approximately 5 minutes.

Add in the prawns  and salmon. Pour in the wine. Simmer until the seafood is pink and opaque. Season to taste with salt.

To serve, toss in the cooked pasta. Add a splash of olive and toss until well-coated and glossy. Scoop into individual serving bowls and sprinkle with grated cheese.


  1. That sounds wonderful! I love the combination of salmon and prawns. P~

  2. This sounds so easy and delicious! Perfect for guests. I can't wait to try it, although I might just use "regular" pasta =)

  3. Sounds tasty - salmon and zucchini do go so well.

  4. I love dishes where you can use a little of this and a little of that as the pantry offers. Thanks Cam.

  5. This sounds delicious - what a beautiful mix of ingredients!

  6. Wow ! Great to know that Jake is on gluten free diet for last 3 years, we have just started avoiding gluten food as far as possible but not completely off gluten. This is very healthy yet delicious seafood pasta. Here it's difficult to get gluten free pasta.
