Here’s how I came up with the recipe for this grain free Seafood Pasta. One of my favorite dishes in Italy is “Pasta alla Pescatora”, a delicious spaghetti dish seasoned with different types of seafood simmered in tomato sauce. Unfortunately, I get to enjoy this recipe very rarely, as I tend to avoid nightshades and it’s quite hard to find restaurants that make it without tomatoes.
Also, sometimes I prefer to sub regular gluten free pasta with veggie noodles that add fibers and nutrients to the dish.
So… like it happens most of the times when I really crave a dish, I make it myslef and cook the recipe exactly how I want it. I used spiralized yellow zucchini shaped as linguine and, since usually “Pasta alla Pescatora” is full of clams and mussels which I am too fond about, I replaced them with prawns and scallops which I love very much!
Feel free to use whatever types of seafood you like for this pasta. You can use calamari and chunks of white fish if you prefer.
Remember, one of the secrets to making Italian food taste authentic is to use A LOT of fresh herbs. Make sure you don’t swap the fresh rosemary and sage this recipe calls for for dried herbs. the flavor will be so much more intense and delicious!!

Grain Free Seafood Pasta (GF, DF, AIP)
- 3 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 2 sprigs fresh Rosemary finely chopped
- 2 sprigs fresh Sage finely chopped
- 12 Wild Prawns
- 9 Scallops
- 1/2 tsp Salt
- 1 /12 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
- 6 Yellow Zucchini spiralized
- ½ tsp dried Italian Herbs
- Heat up half of the olive oil in a medium size pan, add in the chopped herbs and, when the oil starts to sizzle, the seafood. Add half of the salt and cook on medium heat on one side for about 3 minutes, then flip on the other side and cook for 2 more minutes.
- Wash the zucchini and to recreate the same pasta shape you see in the photo, use the handheld spiralizer on the “linguini style” blade. If you use a regular spiralizer, you’ll have spaghetti shaped noodles instead.
- Heat up the rest of the olive oil in a large skillet, toss in the spiralized yellow zucchini and add the remaining salt and dried herbs.
- Helping yourself with tongs, gently move the noodles around the skillet so they are evenly coated with the seasoning.
- Cook for about 1 and 1/2 minutes making sure to not put a lid on (this will create steam and make the noodles soggy).
- Place the zucchini noodles in a large bowl, top with the seafood and enjoy!
