Spaghetti wrapped King Prawns

Spaghetti wrapped King Prawns

This is a recipe that chef Filippa made for us at her restaurant in Messina.  Her daughter came up with the idea to wrap the king prawns in spaghetti, they loved how it tasted and have been making it ever since.  Of course she lives right on the coast of Sicily and has the best of the fresh catch to cook everyday.

Ingredients
King Prawns
Fresh thick spaghetti
Semolina flour
Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil (EVOO)

Instructions
Clean the king prawns but leave the head & tail on.
Dust the fresh spaghetti with semolina flour and then tie a few strands around the prawn.  Roll the prawn package in the flour again.
Heat the Papa Vince EVOO in a non stick frying pan until very hot.  Add the prawns and fry gently for a few minutes until thoroughly cooked through.
Serve & enjoy - the spaghetti makes the king prawns nice & crunchy!

Chef Filippa says in the video that Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the oil that can heat to the highest temperature without becoming toxic and that's why Papa Vince Extra Virgin Olive Oil is perfect for this recipe.  We checked out her claims with the OliveOil Times, you can read it here for yourself.

Risotto is a truly Italian Dish.  We don't eat it in Sicily though, it's a comfort food from Northern Italy.  Risotto is made with a short grain rice known as Arborio and the dish gets its creamy consistency by adding broth to the rice and allowing the liquid to be absorbed as you go.
