Recipe by Rita1652

A very Exotic flavorful creamy, cheesy mixture that is filled it into cold shrimp for a tasty appetizer. Watch out taste bud receptors! I used Crosse & Blackwell Chutney. This is a deconstructed coconut shrimp without the frying and served chilled. This makes a great summer “ Fourth Of July” appetizer or even elegant enough for a winter “New Years Eve” appetizer! But when ya taste it you may think you're eating dessert. It can be made ahead for ease of hostessing a party or preparing last minute. make this Crystallized Ginger , Ginger Syrup & Ginger Sugar Crystallized Ginger , Ginger Syrup & Ginger Sugar or buy your favorite brand.
