I grew up in the Bahamas and made conch salad hundreds times. Conch salad is delicious if made properly. FIrst of all conch must not be cleaned in fresh water, it makes it taste stale. Use salt water or if unavailable make you own with lots of kosher salt and spring water. Next conch for salad is never cooked . You cut your conch up uncooked, add tomato, onion, green pepper,salt, pepper and lots of lime juice. In the Islands we use sour oranges instead of limes but they are not usually available in the U.S. Be sure you conch is fresh from a reputable fish place. item not reviewed by moderator and published
As a lover of conch salad, I have had it many ways and have made it many ways. When I make it, it usually comes straight from the water to the kitchen. Conch come in many sizes. Eight conch does not seem proportionate to the other ingredients, unless they are fairly small, best clarify this recipe in terms of volume or weight of conch. item not reviewed by moderator and published
