COMMENTS

The sequence is welldefined (the terms must alternate in parity, and by Dirichlet's theorem a(n+1) always exists).  N. J. A. Sloane, Mar 07 2017
Does every positive integer eventually occur?  Dmitry Kamenetsky, May 27 2009. Reply from Robert G. Wilson v, May 27 2009: The answer is almost certainly yes, on probabilistic grounds.
It appears that this is the limit of the rows of A051237. That those rows do approach a limit seems certain, and given that that limit exists, that this sequence is the limit seems even more likely, but no proof is known for either conjecture.  Robert G. Wilson v, Mar 31 2011, edited by Franklin T. AdamsWatters, Mar 17 2011

EXAMPLE

a(5)=7 because 1, 2, 3 and 4 have already been used and neither 4+5=9 nor 4+6=10 are prime while 4+7=11 is prime.
