Set aside 40 whole shrimp for garnish; coarsely chop remaining shrimp.
In a bowl, beat together cheese, celery, garlic, hot pepper seasoning, and soy until very smooth.
Stir in chopped shrimp just until blended.
Cover and chill about 1 hour or until easy to handle.
Sprinkle parsley on a piece of wax paper.
For each appetizer, shape 1 teaspoon cheese mixture into a ball, then roll in parsley to coat all sides.
Spear reserved shrimp on wooden picks and stick one shrimp into each ball.
Cover and refrigerate until thoroughly chilled or until next day.
