This was a sponsored post for Philadelphia cream cheese that originally appeared on my review blog. All opinions are my own.
In honor of the Real Women of Philadelphia cooking video competition, I decided to test out a recipe by one of the finalists. These Coconut Shrimp Poppers with Chili Mango Cream by finalist Carmell Childs sounded so good, I just had to give them a try.
What I really liked about these fried shrimp was that they weren’t overly sweet like a lot of the Coconut Shrimp you find at restaurants. The shrimp were a perfect balance of savory and sweet and I loved the combination of chili and mango in the creamy dipping sauce.
These were a huge hit with Phil—I’m glad I grabbed one right away, because once I turned my back they were gone. I had halved the recipe since there were only two of us, but next time I’ll be making a full batch for sure!
