COMMENTS
Conjecture: a(n) is nonzero if n is odd and greater than 120.
This implies Goldbach's conjecture for even numbers of the form 4*k + 2.

EXAMPLE
a(1) = 0 since 1 + 0 - 0 = 1 is not a prime.
MATHEMATICA
a[n_]:=Det[Table[If[PrimeQ[n+j-i]==True&&PrimeQ[n+i-j]==True, 1, 0], {i, 0, n-1}, {j, 0, n-1}]]
