Background

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.

Video

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 (EVOO) is perfect for this recipe.  We checked out her claims with the OliveOil Times, you can read it here for yourself.
