    Here's what I know about Conch. It's a sea snail with a darn pretty shell! Ok, to be more specific...

    Conch is a marine gastropod mollusk with a famous spiraled shell (that's the pretty part) and edible flesh similar to that of abalone (Ok, I've had that and liked it but we are still talking about a snail), another edible mollusk. The conch is found in Southern waters, particularly the Caribbean, and it has been used as a source of food for centuries. There are a number of uses for conch, ranging from thin raw slices in fresh salads to breaded and deep fried wedges. Some fishmongers carry conch during the summer peak season, and it is also available frozen and canned in other regions (I have heard that canned is icky).

    It's my understanding that if treated right, it makes for one outrageous salad. I hear Conch Fritters are "to die for". That has to be one tasty snail
