Conch Salad (Ceviche)

Updated on December 8, 2012

Conchy Joe Cook's favorite Conch Salad Recipe

One of the most popular Bahamian/Caribbean dishes! Now you can make it yourself!

It all started with meeting my husband, turns out he is from the Abacos. He loves to cook. For years his friends would have him cook for them and begged him for his recipes. Then I came along and came up with an idea.....

2 firm tomatoes, plum work well

1 med sweet pepper

1 stalk celery

chop all veggies until fine

1 tsp lemon pepper

      Welcome to Squidoo. I've not had a conch anything but I like many different kinds of seafood. I would be willing to try the recipe if I ever encounter a conch.

      I've never tried conch. it's probably difficult to get hold of here in the UK. But your recipe sounds good.

      @PaulWinter: You may be able to find it frozen. That is the easiest way, and it is already cleaned for you. :-)

      Looks like I should make a trip to the Bahamas to pick up some fresh conch. Yummy recipes! Great business idea, too.
