5 Gluten Free Fish Recipes

Gluten-Free Recipes Featuring Wild-Caught Seafood

Including wild-caught fish in a gluten-free diet is a delicious way to bolster your meals with protein rich in a variety of micronutrients and minerals like vitamin D, iron, zinc, magnesium, and calcium.

What Is a Gluten Free Diet?

Gluten is a protein found in wheat and some other grains, which some people avoid if it causes digestive issues. For people with celiac disease — which attacks the inside of the small intestine — following a gluten-free diet is a necessary treatment. Though going gluten free is a dietary choice for some and a necessity for others, it can lead to nutrient deficiencies if not supplemented with other high-quality, nutrient-rich ingredients like wild-caught seafood. *As always, please consult with your doctor before starting a new diet plan, especially if you have any pre-existing conditions.*

These 5 recipes show you easy ways to enjoy gluten-free meals that feature wild-caught seafood from Alaska.
